holy aoss 


No Greater Love Hath Any Man, 

Our Book is a conscious tribute to the men 
who carry on the Christlike virtue of Self 
Sacrifice into the days of tomorrow. Knowing 
our indebtedness to this consumate manliness, 
forgetfulness of self, forgetfulness of ambition, 

Than To Give His Life. 

we dedicate this volume in a special act of 
devotion to our beloved Dean of Studies, Father 
Francis J. Dolan, and our esteemed Dean of 
Discipline, Father John J. Reed. 



Sentimental Mortals! Half our happiness is in 
our memories. Perhaps that's why this testament 
of school and sport and spirit will grow greater, 
come treasured more, when our years lengthen. 
Safe to say, that more than once the covers of this 
hook will be turned, its pages thumbed again and 
again, and a voice within us sigh: "It has been good." 














The tremendous results achieved at Holy Cross 
within the last few years are due in large measure to 
the zealous execution ol the President, Rev. John M. 
Fox, S.J. Not only has Father Fox been the guiding 
force in the management of the College and its direc- 
tion, but he also has been a noble influence in impress- 
ing the student body with the ideals ot Christian man- 
hood. His profound speeches have been engraven on 
every heart.

Father Bulman, Dean of Sophomores, died on April 1st, 1933, after a 
short illness and operation. A man ol brilliance, culture, priestly dignity, 
he was loved not alone lor what he did — ever the Samaritan with his 
constant deeds of charity and mercy — hut also for what he was — a just man 
and a minister of God to men. 

Twenty-seven long years marked his service in the Jesuit Order. He 
taught as a professor at St. John's College in Philadelphia, Boston College, 
Georgetown University in Washington, and at Holy Cross. While on the 
Hill, coming in 1*^24 as professor ot rhetoric, he was in turn Student 
Counselor, Moderator of Blessed Virgin Sodality, Dean of Freshmen, and 
Dean of Sophomores. 

The following taken from The Tomahaw\ gives a significant touch 
to Father Bulman's career at Holy Cross: 

The late Rev. Neil L. Bulman, S.J., played a threefold 
importance in the educational development of the students. 
As a professor, his untiring efiorts assisted in training the 
mind. He proved an inspiring and sympathetic man in the 
position of Sophomore and Freshman Dean, to whose open 
heart and sound mind the problems of the young student 
might he brought with an assurance that a favorable solution 
would be found for them. His most notable work was per- 
formed in the role of student counselor. He symbolized the 
essence of sanctity and wisdom in ministering to the spiritual 
life of the student body. In fostering a sound spiritual phi- 
losophy, the late lamented Jesuit was a true laborer in the 
vineyard of Christ. Because he epitomized the aim of the 
College in attending to the religious necessities of the stu- 
dents, Father Bulman leaves an important position vacant. 
Requicscat in Pace.

The Alumni Association 

Charles Bowman Stromc, '23 

/ w. ittn < Secretary 

The General Alumni Association was organized 
at Holy Cross in 1869 with the election of the follow- 
ing officers: Rev. John }. Power, '51, President; Rev. 
James A. Healy, '49, Vice-President; Dr. James A. 
McDonough, '63, Recording Secretary; Rev. John B. 
Purcell, '64; Corresponding Secretary; James L. 
L. Walsh, Judge of the Boston District Court, Dr. Mc- 
Rev. William J. Denvir, '58, and Michael S. J. Burke, 
'68, as members of the Executive Committee. 

Of the notable group who served as the first gov- 
erning board of the Association, Father Power was 
later to become Vicar-General of the Diocese of Spring- 
field; Father Healy, Bishop of Portland, Maine; James 
J. Walsh, Judge of the Boston District Court, Dr. Mc- 
Donough was for many years a prominent physician 
in Massachusetts. Father Purcell died in 1873, a few 
years after the Association was formed. Father Flat- 
ley, founder of the Flatley Gold Medal for Philosophv 
at Holy Cross, and Pastor at Maiden, died there in 
1896. Father Denvir was Pastor at Charlestown, 
where he died in 1885, and Michael S. J. Burke, who 

was not ordained until 1871, two years after the Association was formed, died shortly 

after his ordination. 

The first general reunion of the Association was held at the Parker House, Boston, 
December 19, 1868. In his opening address to the Alumni gathered, Father Healy, who 
was presiding, said: 

Our past attempts at a reunion of old students have been thwarted so many times that 
some among us began to despair of attaining the desirable result which you see here tonight. 
The distance of the College from the great cities; the multiplied exercises of Commencement 
Day; the hurry of greeting and leave-taking have rendered abortive all our desires and efforts 
to establish an acquaintance and association among the former students of our College. Under 
these circumstances a few of us resolved to have an assembly in Boston, inviting, for the first 
time, not only such as are here present, but many others of the neighborhood of our city. 

Our Alma Mater bears the proud distinction of sending forth none but children of the one 
untarnished faith; and our re-union here tonight as her children, is of itself a pledge of our 
fidelity to the principles of faith and morality then impressed upon us. It is a guarantee of the 
past — it is a pledge for the future. Not on'v, then, whatever touches or advances the interests 
of our Alma Mater is of importance to us, but whatever moves the great heart of the Catholic 
Church should move and does move the heart and stir the blood of every student of Holy Cross 
College. It is not for me to unroll their noble record in battles Catholic; but after all their 
contests and their victories — for such there have been — they have come here tonight, the priest, 
the soldier, the lawyer, the physician, the merchant, to lay their laurels, as a well deserved 
homage, at the feet of their Alma Mater. 

As time rolled along, regional groups were formed in different parts of the country, 
the first being organized in Connecticut in 1896. 

In 1925, under the aegis of Rev. Joseph N. Dinand, S.J., then President of Holy Cross, 
Frederick J. Dietzman, '94, was appointed the first resident Executive Secretary of the 
Association, and he remained in office until 1927, when he was succeeded by the present 
Executive Secretary, Charles Bowman Strome, '23, of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. 

Upon the succession of Mr. Strome to the office of Executive Secretary, the Associa- 
tion was completely reorganized. A group of twenty-eight regional clubs was organized 

throughout the country, augmenting the work of the general board of control, composed of 
the officers and directors of the National Association. During this time, the Alumnus, offi- 
cial organ of the Association, was established and the Dining Hall Campaign launched. 

The present officers of the National Association are:

The Senior 










History of the Class of 1933 

Shawn A. Sheehan, '33 

\THTH parents' warnings echoing in our ears, neatly be-ribboned high 
school diplomas tucked under our arms and timidity conquering our 
confidence, three hundred-odd young hopefuls dropped their bags in the cor- 
ridors of O'Kane and set about the tedious operation of registering as Holy 
Cross men. Hoover "prosperity" was at its height, and we were in haste to 
dash through four years, earn a degree and go out to collect our share of the 
nation's wealth, so we were more than ordinarily impatient to get down to this 
business of being college students. 

After stacking our trunks in the various rooms of Fenwick and O'Kane, 
we made haste to spend huge sums on banners, pictures, pennants and such 
truck for our living quarters, get acquainted with our room and corridor 
mates, and buy many books. 

Our football-minded classmates reported for the Freshman team, with Joe 
Ambrose, Don Kelly and Jim Ryan outstanding in the two tie games that were 
played that fall. We followed the varsity games religiously, learned the 
cheers and songs, and felt ourselves full-fledged collegians. 

The first honor list disclosed that among our pre-eminent students were 
Ed Hanify, Frank Lovelock, Ed Hidalgo, Charley McGooey, Marty Moran 
and Ray McNally. The hockey season found our class team going through an 
undefeated season, with Doc Corrigan and Wally Clifford as shining lights. 
The Freshman basketball team had a good year, due to the fine playing of 
Paul Schoenrock, Tom McCarthy, Jim Nicholson and Frank Quine. The 
prize debate marked our first victory on the platform, and Harry Kirwin, 
Ed Hidalgo and Ed Hanify blended their ability to defeat the Sophomores. 
Ray Leddy and Ed Curry had prominent roles in the presentation of the 
"Merchant of Venice," while Paul Shannon and Lou DePro won their spurs 
as entertainers on Freshman Night. 

Song and dance movies were making a valiant stand, and we trooped 
almost to a man to see "Sunnyside Up." Soon thereafter every victrola on the 
campus was blaring "Aren't We All" and "If I Had a Talking Picture of You." 
Rudy Vallee's band was highly popular and his "Stein Song" was beginning 
to get on our collective nerves. 

By Easter we had become accustomed to frequent exams, especially those 
two bluebook ones of Mr. Burke, as well as to frequent presence in Father 
Wheeler's line of miscreants. With our election of class officers, we became 
for the first time a united body, with Ed Hanify gaining the presidency and 
Pat Roche, Tim Murray and Wally Clifford the other officers. Ozzie Grimes 
was the accepted class baby. Jim Brennan was already the "mad chemist," 
Tom McKeon, Larry Carroll and Joe Payton were our songbirds. 

With the coming of spring, our baseball and track hopefuls reported for 
practice. Our nine was undefeated, with Marty Murray, Al Niemiec and 
Frank Cammarano as stars. Matt Blake, Ken Cuneo, Tom McNally, Gordon 
Winslow and Bill Coakley were outstanding on the cinders. The annual 
tennis tournament went to Jim Nicholson. 

The depression was an acknowledged fact when we returned as Sopho- 
mores, and we found that the situation was reacting on our allowances. 

Jim Zyntell rose to fame on the varsity football eleven, and set the pace 
for other gridsters. Bill Zeller and Harry Kirwin held important roles in the 
presentation of "Julius Caesar," Charley Callahan, Harry Furay and Tony 
Woods were working hard with The Tomahawk^, and many of our members 
were contributing to The Purple, among them Tom Brack, Bill Zeller, John 
Dwight, Lewis Wheelock, Frank Cronin and Chris Reynolds. 

Elections ended with George Moran ascending to the class presidency. 
Some of us went to the Junior Prom and the accounts of the night set us to 
anticipating our own Prom of the following year. Tim Murray made a mem- 
orable catch that saved the B. C. game, thereby climaxing a great season with 
the Barrymen. Al Niemiec and Frank Cammarano were fixtures in the 


The year's 
Crane's death. 

only sad note was sounded when we received news of Dick 
He had been one of the most popular and admired classmates. 

Our return as Juniors found us moulded into a strongly united class, and 
we were grieved to learn that illness had prevented Pat O'Connell and Harry 
Kirwin from rejoining us. The depression was still taking its toll, Bing Crosby 
and Russ Columbo were at the height of their popularity. 

Our athletes were important factors in Captain McEwan's eleven that fall, 
and at the end of the season, Big Jim Ryan was elected to the captaincy. Tim 
Murray, Ig Zyntell, Mike Favulli and Don Kelly were valued cogs in the Pur- 
ple grid machine. Those happy days in Beaven sow the memorable jousts 
between the Dastards and the Gobby Boys, the founding of the Purple Zilch, 
much noisy fun and not too much study. 

Ed Hanify won the oratorical contest. Bill Zeller and Frank Morris took 
The Patcher elections, while The Tomahaw\ editorship went to Ed Hidalgo, 
Jack Joy and Charley Callahan. Our intra-mural courtsters won the basketball 
championship, thanks in good part to Johnny McDonough, Paul Schoenrock 
and Tom McCarthy. George Moran was returned to the presidency for Senior 
year, with Jack Keenan, Tim Murray and Dick Healy winning the other 

The Prom, of course, was the high spot of the year, and Paul Shannon put 
it over in beautiful fashion. Bancroft ballroom was the scene, Lew Conrad 
furnished the music, America supplied the girls, and everyone had a marvelous 
time. Baseball time came and Paul Shoenrock won a varsity post, Don May- 
nard starred behind the bat and our other diamond artists performed in stellar 
style. Frank Cammarano was elected to the captaincy. Al Niemiec and Jack 
Haggerty won the school tennis tournament, while Johnny McDonough and 
Charley Callahan vanquished all foes to earn the doubles title. 

Our numbers much lessened in the days since Freshman year, we returned 
last September a bit more serious, fully conscious of the responsibilities that 
would soon be ours. With genuine sorrow we learned of the death of Ray 
McNally, beloved classmate. 

Almost every room in Loyola boasted a radio, and those autumn days 
were filled with "We Just Couldn't Say Good-bye" and "I'm Sure of Every- 

thing But You." We were introduced to the mysteries of Ethics and Psyche, 
with the frequent exams, and soon got into the swing of them. Football came 
and went, and Jim Ryan's lads put up some mighty battles on the gridiron. 

Hockey was impossible, though there were several valiant efforts to freeze 
the rink. Our class team mowed down all opposition in basketball. Tom 
O'Connell won plaudits for his portrayal of the King in "Hamlet." Tony 
Woods lifted The Purple to new high standards, ably abetted by Bill Keating, 
Al Currier, Harry Furay, Bob O'Neill, Dick McCarthy, Frank Morris, Ray 
Fitzpatrick, Ed Hidalgo and Ed Hanify. The Tomahawk^ kept to its high 
plane, thanks to Ed Hidalgo, Johnny Joy and Charley Callahan. Senior Ball 
elections gave a victory to Gus LaSalle after an exciting campaign. Lou 
DePro told us more stories of Chevy Chase at the Senior Banquet, and then 
led a bunch of madmen through a deliriously entertaining program at our 
reception to the Freshmen. 

Clubs thrived during the year, mainly due to the efforts of their leaders. 
Matt Ashe led B. J. F., Charley Horgan headed the Sanctuary Society, Frank 
Lovelock roused interest in the Aquinas Circle, Lee Dante founded a Rifle 
Club, Bill Peters presided over the Economists, and Bob O'Neill and Bill Zeller 
fathered the Playshop and the Dramatic Society. Bernie Fee managed two 
successful hops for the K. of C, Charley Callahan put on a great intra-mural 
athletic program, while the Sodality was ably managed by John Dwight, Gard 
Gibson, Dick McCarthy and Hugh O'Flynn. 

We saw and cheered Noel Coward's "Cavalcade," liked Lionel Barrymore 
in "Rasputin," and sang the praises of "42nd Street." "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" 
was our song favorite of early spring, succeeding "Please" and "Farewell to 
Arms." With the fourth quarter well on its way, we began feverish prepara- 
tions for entrance to graduate schools, hunts for jobs, and study for the oral. 
The continued absence of Walt Clifford, seriously ill, found us hoping and 
praying that he would soon be himself again.

receptions to the freshmen . . . the hardness of the seats in O'Kane Hall . . .

II this were a catalogue of those on whom smiles the goddess 
of letters (the kind with stamps on them) Charlie would well 
deserve the same initial honor which he now enjoys. Mail time 
held little uncertainty for him; an eye glint with confidence, a 
poised bearing, Charlie would step to the box, dial his number, 
and presto — a neat packet of correspondence lay inside. And 
though Charlie was never much given to the color green, he 
became condescendingly broadminded when it came to green 
scented stationery with Framingham postmarks. 

Entering the present class in Sophomore, after a year at St. 
Michael's, this mirthy blond stripling bolstered a much needed 
happy morale, and bridged the void of strangeness so effectively 
with his immediate response of geniality and good-fellowship. 
The years taught us much to admire in him, taught us much to 
value in his sincerity and straightforwardness. Contact with 
him on the intra-mural field, football, basketball, baseball, won 
our regard and made us like the thorough sportsman that he 
was; one who took the breaks as they came, grinning all the

Joe came unto his own in the last football game of his career. 
Playing against B. C. on that cruelly cold November day, he gave 
the spectators such an inspired performance and exhibition as has 
ever been seen at the Stadium. On offense he tore tremendous 
holes; on defense he repeatedly smashed up enemy interference. 
And as for his punting, nothing like it has ever been seen, even in 
a College that recalls the prodigious boots of Red Baker and 
Stewie Clancy. Time after time he lofted towering spirals far 
down the field, sixty, seventy yards, kicks that had the stands 
gasping and the opponents stricken. 

Joe has been like that, though, all through his four years on the 
Hill, this beautifully proportioned lad from Pennsylvania with 
his readiness of unbelievable reserve power and effort. He has 
indeed struck a name for himself among the fellows as a man 
in the true sense, a plodder, an unevasive worker, a doer and a 
sturdy friend. He lent willingly of his abilities to all and in the 
eyes of all brought a new meaning into the title of "A Holy 
Cross Student and Athlete."

A tap of the gavel, a quiet but forceful request for attention, 
and Matt called to order another meeting of the B. J. F., whose 
destinies bore so fruitful a guidance during the past year. The 
same sombre, grave voice that opened the debating society meet- 
ing often relaxed its sternity and proffered a kind and cheery 
"hello" at our passing on campus, street, or corridor; a greeting 
which bore within itself the warmth of solid conservatism and 
the deep appreciation of fellowmen. 

Matt never fails to strike even the stranger as brilliant, as a 
thinker, a prober, a serious and contemplative gentleman. His 
forte was fed by literature, philosophy and history; his all per- 
vading aspect was truth. His opinion was compounded of sin- 
ceritv, understanding, modesty and conviction. He took the 
floor only when he had something worth while to say, and 
then invariably his sentiments were listened to with deference 
and with the same respect which men tendered to his excellent

He comes from that hard tack, hard cider, hard coal town 
known as Mount Carmel — Charlie with his placid, composed 
surety, his reliability, determination, his steady German Stick- 
to-itive-ness. (lifted with a dead eye practicality, he did not 
ofl shoot his mark when he turned to Science for elaborate 
expression, and to the B.S. laboratory for endless hours of 
experimenting, concocting, reducing strange, vile, and start- 
lingly beautiful mixtures. He found much to his liking in this 
atmosphere and environment. 

In lighter moments Charlie's pipes were his passion. Few 
will ever forget the picture he made as he sat wreathed in 
curling smoke, contentedly enjoying a fleeting respite from his 
problems; tew will forget the aroma of his precious "Miner's 
Extra," as nearly as powerful as the tobacco itself. It made us 
wonder and marvel that any man could smoke it steadily and 
harmlessly, but Beicr did both, he smoked it almost incessantly 
and boasted that fact while knowing listeners shuddered. All 
in all it shows his persistence, but if you should ask us, he 
certainly made a more Shavian gesture to permanence in our 
memory by the odor of that pipe that by his more modest pen- 
chant for Science.

Ed came up from Fordham, bringing a sprightly nature, 
plenty of intelligence, and a laughter tonic for our occasional 
blues. Somewhat of a bit late entry, he jockeyed in no time to 
a position abreast of many of us. Before long he was doing 
heavy work for the sake of athletics at the Cross and winning 
the assistant managership of varsity basketball with the least of 
ostentation and the maximum of efficiency. 

The epithet "grind" would not fit him, he was too well bal- 
anced for all that. He took his studies in stride and was sober, 
serious and aimful in their concern. Out for the best in an all- 
around culture, he modified curriculum with play and extra- 
curricular only in a sane and provident fashion. 

Ed was no less at any time a friend. His was the estimable 
propinquity of adopting an interest and regard for all who 
knew him, giving and abetting in difficulties, helping and 
encouraging in struggles. To those who had the good fortune 
to know him intimately, he will always be remembered for his 
unselfish constancy and devotion to fellow men.

A jolly, gloom-chasing, light-hearted chap, who mysteriously 
accomplishes a great deal; a joy spreader with a flair for organ- 
ization and a talent for such direction is the paradox of Ed. 
The fact that he impressed us not only as an incurable optimist, 
hut when needs be, a serious and energetic worker, is a tribute 
of necessity to his essential worth. 

When hard work was needed, Ed gave it unsparingly. As 
treasurer of the Economics Club he gave the office its first im- 
portance. As for his pride and joy, the Waterbury Club, his 
efforts cannot he overestimated. First he served as its treasurer; 
and then as its dance chairman on several occasions. And as 
his crowning achievement, he organized the Catholic college 
clubs of his home city into a unit to sponsor an intercollegiate 
ball at Easter. 

Perhaps we will best remember Ed as a genial dispenser of 
hospitality in his ever popular room, a smile on his face, a 
friendly greeting on his lips, and a welcoming hand out-

To most of us Matty's name brings to mind a picture of raw 
courage that will not be forgotten. It was in the spring of 
Sophomore year that Matty, an unsung two-miler, was entered 
in the dual meet with B. C. Lap after lap he plodded along, 
far from the leaders, and apparently tired and out of the race, 
with two B. C. runners far ahead of him. The Cross needed 
points that afternoon and none knew it better than Matty. Bit 
by bit his pace began to increase. With the last lap started, he 
was more than fifty yards behind the leader. Weariness and 
fatigue were in his every stride; courage alone carried him 
along. Yards, yards, yard by yard he closed the gap. At the 
mid-turn he was only fifteen yards behind. Suddenly smooth- 
ness of stride was gone, timing was forgotten. All he had was 
the will not to be beaten. He staggered up even with his rival, 
strained into the lead, across the line — a winner! 

Words can't add anything to a chap like that, a chap who 
fights every second, a youth who gives everything he has, a 
man who just won't be beaten. Matt is like that in everything 
he does, a worker who plods along and then from nowhere 
looses a final sprint, staving off all opposition. The Class is 
proud to know a man like that, one who will fight till the every 
end for his cause and our own.

"'The Mayor ol Pittston," as Jack was labelled in Freshman 
year, is a grinning, wise-cracking lad whose chief mission in 
lile has been to dispel any clouds ol gloom overhanging Paka- 
choag. And has he succeeded! Witness how he is welcomed 
everywhere, the friendships that he holds, and the regret with 
which we restore him to the mining sector! 

In repartee he was supreme, and even the best memories can 
recall no instance in which Red was at loss for a retort that was 
conclusive and humorous. A mere twist of terms, a satirical 
comment, or a bit of uncanny mimicry were all he needed to 
bring down the house in gales of laughter. More than one 
can blush when they relate how they were put to naught when 
they attempted to pin him down. A build-up, a setting of the 
stage, and Jack cut in with a witty comment that ended then 
and there the case in hand. 

Never flustered or upset, rather sure and decided and opin- 
ionated, Jack blazed a merry way through his four years with 
us, spreading the contagion of his good nature afar, making us 
realize more the things worth-while.

There is something of a gamut between business and poetry, 
but Tom, with his brain tor figures and his dreamy eyes for 
verse, has been an out and out exception. In economics and its 
sister subjects he was the thoroughgoing man of finance, prac- 
tical, capable, energetic, while in poetics he was the sensitive, 
appreciative, delicate bard of songs. The successful union of 
the practical and the idealistic can be accounted for only by the 
measure of his versatility. 

Tom's fellow members in the Fitchburg Club still sing his 
praises for the able way in which he managed the annual 
Christmas formal; the business office knows at a glance his 
incomparablv neat and workmanlike ledgers; the Purple well 
recalls his sophomore class ode, his opinions on art and litera- 
ture. Engrossed either in the intricacies of accounting or the 
realms of the imagination, Tom has moulded a career and a 
reputation which all of us cannot but envy.

"And what care I lor a thousand whales?" cried Barnacle 
Bill, the sailor. Here in person is that nautical personage, that 
jolly sealarer, our own Barnacle Bill. From the day, four years 
ago, when he stepped ofT the gangplank of the Lowell-Worces- 
ter luxury liner onto the planking of the Blackstone wharf, he 
has sailed into our friendship and esteem, and we who have 
known him hate to shove off lor unknown and uncharted seas. 

Shrewd, jovial, and ever nonchalant, Bill soon proved him- 
self a smart husiness man and a willing friend. He had a 
playful habit of entering a room with an innocently beguiling 
smile, picking up any books within reach, and gently tossing 
them from a third story window. Still possessed of the same 
bland innocence, he would trip gaily from the room before the 
victim could even think of venting his rage. 

Loving the sea as he did, Bill was always on hand when Aus 
Maley's ship came in, smilingly ready to foreclose on the green- 
backed cargo. He was always more than kind though to the 
crew of stowaways on his own ship's docking, and he had more 
than one at every port.

Chemistry was more than another subject to Jim, even more 
than another hobby. He ate, breathed, lived, and slept Chem- 
istry and its atmosphere. His days were filled with equations 
compounds, and experiments, his nights were taken up with 
preparations of messy concoctions whose evil odors brought 
dire threats from unfortunate neighbors. Certainly his dreams 
must have been devoted to acids and bases. 

Less high-minded classmates of the genial Jim were wont to 
prostitute his amazing knowledge to the playing of practical 
jokes. Many a time he has smilingly abandoned serious work 
to construct water bags that disappear when they have drowned 
the unlucky victim, cigarettes that exploded, dye that would 
be used to paint the hands and feet of sleeping innocents, soap 
that would stain the user's hands, and numerous other mediums 
of torture. 

When Jim's chemical mixtures were not giving off sweet 
fumes to the corridor's disgust, he would take out one of his 
dozen pipes, all equally old and foul-smelling, and send waves 
of sickening smoke abroad. That this obliging and genial lad 
has not been murdered in his sleep is a tribute to his own per- 
sonality; any other chemist than Jim would have met Fate long

Coming up from Vermont's granite hills and the sheltered 
walls ot St. Michaels, Jim found himself initiated as a member 
(>l the "foreign legion" and duly a lodger on Top Alumni. Not 
that he minded, for the crowd took him to their bosom, Jim, 
with his sober satire, his panicky wit, and his mellow altruism. 

Jim was another with a special love for Science, a love which 
many of us could discern was bound to grow into a prejudice. 
So easy was it to start him into a defense of Science, its attain- 
ments, its value, that many the unwary stranger found a mod- 
est, self effacing student change from a dispassionate listener 
into a fiery orator routing his hecklers and the hecklers of Sci- 
ence. Jim did not rant without reason, he had the scientists 
cool, calculating logic, a wealth of erudition, and the resources 
of acquired knowledge to back him. 

Undoubtedly Jim will soon be handing on his learning to 
others, convincing them of the true worth of Science, scoring 
them for any hesitation or disbelief, in all finding people much 
the same as ourselves waiting to be converted. And he will do

On the gridiron George was known to be a player who was 
steady, resourceful and consistent, able to adapt himself readily 
to changes of tactics. It would be hard to find another grid- 
ster who, after playing center for two years, was able to take a 
turn at guard or tackle and do more than tolerably well. Not 
a flashy player, but one in at every tackle and never at a loss, 
he was a valued cog in the Purple grid machine. 

In the classroom and in all our relations with him, George 
showed many of the same qualities. His consistency and stead- 
iness could be taken for granted, his resourcefullness was un- 
questioned, and his adaptability made it easy for him to adjust 
himself to any company. 

The Worcester Club drew many benefits from his sincere 
and earnest efforts; his enthusiasm brightened many of its activ- 
ities and his work helped effect more than one success. Few day 
students had so many and such enduring friendships as George; 
few fellows have thrown themselves so whole-heartedly into 
activities; none is more deserving of the friendship we have 
been privileged to give him.

Tennis has been Jack's main tortc here on Pakachoag, and 
yet this smiling ambassador from Gloucester has found time to 
plant his mark indelibly on the records as a student, a go-getter, 
and a fine friend. Jack showed notice as a freshman that his 
tennis game was to be reckoned with, and for the past three 
seasons his southpaw spins have bewiledered opponents of the 
Purple tennis team. He was a member, with Keenan and 
Nicholson, of the mighty net trio from the ranks of '33. 

Not only busting in print with his string of victories, he 
helped edit the news at Holy Cross. For three years he held 
the important post ol feature editor on the Tomahawk\. His 
studies did not suffer thereby, but were rather spurred by his 
extracurricular activities. Many the night could he be seen 
prowling the wilds of second Loyola seeking a fellow-sufferer 
in accounting that they might compare mistakes. 

Jack was also a goller of note, a member of some mighty 
good football and baseball teams of II Loyola, and if we hear 
correctly, responsible for the "mystery pass" from Cahill to 
Fitzpatrick which invariably beluddled opponets. Try it on 
the world. Jack, all they have is a line"!

To most of us B.S. meant a course involving long hours in 
laboratories, vast amounts of work and hours and hours of 
study, but to Matty it was an opportunity to study and investi- 
gate the sciences that he loved. All else was incidental to this 
energetic experimenter from the Hills of Vermont; science was 
the cause to which he offered long hours of arduous efforts. 

Away from his books and test-tubes, Matt was one of the 
friendliest and most likeable of fellows, but once a new theory 
or a doubtful experiment weaved its spell, nothing else existed 
for him until that particular difficulty had been solved to his 
complete satisfaction. 

Our amazement at his vast store of energy is equalled only 
by our admiration of one who marches so steadily and surely 
to his chosen goal. Sincerity and straightforwardness like 
Matt's has not and will not go unappreciated.

There is hard]) a better known figure on the Hill than 
Charlie. Congenial, enterprising, energetic, he has become one 
of our most prominent classmen. With somewhat of a mag- 
netic personality too, Charlie abounds in industry, persuasive- 
ness, self-reliancy, gathering to his fold friends from all sides. 

The Greek headed, curled blonde from Westfield, New Jer- 
sey, distinguished himself in sports in Freshman year, and since 
has been bettering his records through the succeeding three 
years. His enthusiasm and efforts on the part ol intramural 
sports won him the appointment of Student Athletic Director 
in Senior year, a post which required devision of varied and 
attractive programs of recreation and exercise. 

Guiding the business department of the Tomahawk\ through 
a year of trying economic conditions, and the Patcher's adver- 
tising to a peak above the preceding year, Charlie's acumen 
helped both the weekly and the year book to keep on their feet 
and the black side of the ledger. If only for these, and not 
for his hundred other achievements, the class and school should 
be humbly indebted.

The only thing small about Ed was his stature, in all else he 
tipped the scales and bettered the best. He was interested in 
his class work, found time for the athletic field, and survived 
rather well the hectic meetings of the Worcester Club in which 
only the strongest survive. 

After showing the boys in Freshman year that basketball was 
a mere matter of angles of incidence and reflection, Ed gradu- 
ated into the higher fields of intramurals. For three years he 
was high scorer of the day student athletic teams, giving his 
fellow townsmen something high to aim at in the years to come. 

Ed has plenty of courage too, daring the sleet, snow, wind 
and rain, he made many the hatless journeys from his home to 
this Worcester hill, his brown curly locks jigging in the breeze. 
We feel sure that there were many admirers along the way 
whose feminine hearts were set aflutter. Stories from the citv 
have it that every Worcester Club dance saw some beauty trail- 
ing petite Lochinvar. Well, he has it coming to him!

Fred is the long oi it in the Callahan family. He and Ed 
have been playing duets since childhood, in studies, athletics, 
and society. Fred has many prodigious teats on the intramural

ball, baseball, and basketball. 

The Callahans have one adept salesman in the family. Fred 
is responsible, smile and all, for the support which his Vernon 
hill friends have rendered to the Worcester Club's affairs. Me 
had the persuasive oratory, the finesse, the welcome personality 
to sell ticket, himself, and the spirit oi his own civic-school 
organization to his customers. 

Fred's little red book has been a boon to more than a few 
boarders during these past years. His blind dates for the fel- 
lows were happy debuts into the enjoyable Worcester circles. 
His knack of fixing agreeable dates was due to the same char- 
acteristic of understanding that won him a host of admiring 
friends, here and abroad.

In a school that rules the intercollegiate baseball world, the

Our early illusions of poets as long-haired, wide-eyed, small- 
bodied men, were completely shattered when Charlie began 
penning his delicately fantastic verse for the Purple back in 
Freshman year. Charlie was the antithesis of all these im- 
agined qualities; he was tall and broad-shouldered, his hair was 
combed and his eyes were invitingly friendly. 

But despite his refusal to act the role, Charlie was a poet 
and an excellent one. His verse was airy, crisp, and demurely 
beautiful, with ideas and imagery far removed from a coldly 
practical world. We were not surprised when several of his 
poems were selected for publication in the 1930 anthology of 
the best college verse. 

Poetic fancy has not kept Charlie from being a warm and 
lasting friend, nor from casting a bright cheeriness wherever he 
went. In fact, poetic mysticism did not prevent him from 
being characteristically generous in such mundane matters as 
cigarettes and lunch money. A poet who can be attractively 
human is our big and big-hearted Charlie.

From the town of freightyards and Marywood College came 
this happy lad, carrying with him a huge bag crammed with 
golf clubs. Able to mix well and at case in any company, Ade 
established himself at once as a magnetic figure, and his room 
became in Freshman, what it was to be for four years, a 
friendly center of repartee, bull-sessions and night-before-exam 

Ade's magic with his pet clubs made his golfing ability some- 
thing to conjure with and he became a member of that group of 
good-fellows and globe-trotters known as the golf team. 

Urbane and unruffled always, Ade, on one memorable occa- 
sion, convinced the great Tom Judge that the destiny of the 
school and country depended on his success in chipping golf- 
balls from the library terrace into the flower urns in front of 
Heaven. Tom, who had come to protest, remained to admire 
the skill of our genial Pennsylvanian; he even wanted to try 
the shot himself. That accomplishment is sufficient proof of the 
magnetism of this debonair cosmopolite to whom we bid a 
reluctant an revoir.

Here, Mr. Schulte, is your rival, the man who supplied to- 
bacco to the gang in Loyola, and who had pipes for every con- 
ceivable occasion. His room was famous through four years 
as a tobacco headquarters, a great place to drop in for a smoke 
and a chat. Exams apparently meant little to the gatherings at 
Ed's rendezvous, and more than one of us marveled at Ted's 
ability for concentration. 

A faithful member of the top-Loyola health cult, Ed intro- 
duced to Holy Cross the bar-bell. His exploits with this instru- 
ment aroused the envy of his corridor mates and indignant out- 
bursts on the part of unfortunates rooming below. A year of 
practice with the twenty-pound plaything gave the big Boston- 
ian a consummate skill in tossing it about, and the closing 
months of the year found visitors entering cautiously. 

While the rest of us worried about exams Ed went on his 
casual way, utterly indifferent, but reading of the marks invari- 
ably found him with the leaders. Even three years of premedi 
cal work failed to remove his characteristic serenity, and we 
know that nothing life has to offer can upset the unruffled com- 
posure of the smiling Ed.

Since Branford is hut a few miles trom New Haven, it was 
only natural that Vin should become a fellow-Rotarian of Frank 
Cammarano; that they have been the best of roommates is due 
in great measure to their appreciation of each other, and their 
eager haste to defend each other even in the "riding" field. 

A close student, especially ol the comparative balance sheet 
and its attendant mysteries, Vin managed to prove himself an

at bridge as at studies, he played his hands with a superb indif-

Nathaniel is a decidely inappropriate name for this "take it 
or leave it," good-natured chap from the Heart of the Com- 
monwealth. All the pictures of solemnity, austerity, and that 
staid old New England Puritanism that are conjured up by the 
name of Nathaniel are dispelled by a single glance at the pres- 
ent subject's countenance. 

The usual year book, story of day students truding up Lin- 
den Lane at 8.55 does not hold true of Nat; he drove up the 
Zero curve with a roaring motor and a shouting horn at 8.59 
or thereabouts each day of class. For him to arrive before class 
time would have been an event capable of producing gasps of 
wonder and amazement in his class fellows. 

Nat's serious side was philosophy; his sporting feat tennis. On 
the court his swift, decisive strokes, his clever footwork, his 
smashing drives and aces, were wont to discourage his major 
opponents. Nat stepped even livelier and swifter mentally. 
His philosophy, though compounded for a great part from the 
school of hard knocks and experience, was as potent in downing 
his adversaries or the adversaries of truth as his bang-up net 
work and forward drives with the racquet.

After tour years ot hearing his musical name mis-pronounced 
in a thousand and one ways, Frank was just as patient and 
cheerful about it as any human being could he. The variant 
sounds that have been given the family name of this near-Hart- 
ford classmate, it added together, would reach certainly from 
here to somewhere or other. 

Our reception to the freshmen in Junior year brought about 
the discovery of Frank's ability as a comedian. No entertain- 
ment since has been without his necessary antics and clowning. 
It will be difficult to forget his humorous characterizations, 
especially as the broken-English speaking Chico who stacked 
trouble on the stage and blew up gales of laughter in the audi- 

With his rosy face, his hankering for an exchange of smiles 
and fun, Chico has wound the heart strings of friendship to 
many of us. He has built his lot free from partisanship, taking 
and giving to all freely, generously. When the years have gone 
by time will find us gently thumbing his page again and again.

Whenever anything was brewing on Loyola I, disinterested 
observers knew immediately that John O'Brien was loose again, 
destroying the peace and quiet of that homelike corridor. A 
member of the track team for four years, Johnny did not con- 
fine his running activities to the cinders and boards but saved 
much of his energy for sprints and football games indoors. 
More than one classic dash down the length of the hall was 
arranged and supervised and even run by the untiring Johnny. 

His face is perhaps not "a map of Ireland" (that classic- 
phrase) but it leaves no doubt as to the lineage of this red- 
cheeked, energetic, boisterous chap from New York's suburbs. 
All the wit and good nature of the Irish is found in him, plus 
the ability of getting ahead. 

Despite his characteristic light-heartedness, Johnny, more 
than many of us realize, was a brilliant student. The old days 
of Latin and Greek were taken with as much ease as he now 
grooms his philosophy. An agile mind, considerable back- 
ground, and a thorough acquaintanceship with his subjects 
were his marks. His tasks became creditable accomplishments.

Though we had known Hill to he a great quarter-miler and 
a real team man, the public at large did not come to appreciate 
the fleet-footed Dovvn-easter until this past indoor season. With 
the graduation of Hernie McCafferty last June, track followers 
wondered who would take the place of the great flyer, and the 
indoor season had hardly begun when they placed Bernie's 
mantle over the shoulders of speedy Bill. 

The acclaim that writers and fans gave Bill for his great 
winter performances as lead-oil man lor the crack Purple relay 
team and lor his speed on the cinders this past spring, had been 
given him by us long before. Even as a freshman runner, Bill 
displayed those qualities of tight, speed and endurance that 
have placed him with the track greats of the East. Through 
Sophomore and Junior years he was a real team runner, one 
who could be depended on all the time. The praise that has 
come to him this year is well-deserved, and none were more 
pleased than we that Bill's ability had been recognized. 

On the campus, as on the track, Bill was a sportsman and a 
gentleman. Friendly and likeable, his sincerity and self-efface- 
ment made us admire him the more.

This long-legged, long-driving lad from Norwood first 
attracted our notice by the easy manner in which he sent golf 
balls on tremendous flights over the so-called fairways of the 
hill and dale course above the chapel. Not content with that, 
he served further notice of his prowess by the utterly reckless 
way in which he risked life and limb in those bloody interclass 
football games of Freshman year. By this time his merits were 
evident, and Jim became a friend on whose steadfastness we 
could rely. 

Long hours of practice on the greens and fairways of the 
course a-top the Hill added the finishing touches to Jim's al- 
ready sound golf game, and he was a regular member of the 
links aggregation as a sophomore, playing a game that was 
brilliant without being erratic, Jim's ability manifested itself by 
the uniformly low scores he turned in. Elected to the captaincy 
by his fellow-golfers, his leadership has been noteworthy and 

An amiable and obliging friend, Jim's sunny disposition has 
been as marked as his golfing ability. Gracious in doing favors, 
generous to a fault and essentially likeable, Jim has held a high 
place in our affections.

It's difficult indeed to pick out qualities that make Tim the 
great fellow that he is; it's mainly the fact that he is Tim that 
has brought him so much popularity and friendship. All the 
characteristics are there, but they merge into the composite of 
likeableness, sincerity, co-operation and personality that is Tim. 

Possessed of a remarkable personality, Tim's entrance into 
any gathering was the signal for Old Man Gloom to disappear. 
Optimistic, too, he justified this trait by gaining some 5,000 
miles of travel out of a dilapidated old Ford that he found on a 
Connecticut beach. We spent months in Junior year waiting 
for that wreck to fold up and fall apart but, defying every law 
of science and common sense it held together, made numerous 
trips to Holyoke and way stations, and finally brought its owner 
a profit. That enterprise was magic on Tim's part. 

Liked and respected, Tim became class secretary at the begin- 
ning of Sophomore year and held the post for two years. Char- 
acteristically he refused to run again for the office this year. In 
his office, as in everything else, Tim won our esteem tor his 
tact, his geniality and his ability.

It's not without reason that we have christened this visioning 
son of Maine "The Flyer Man." Time and distance were 
hated foes of Larry's, and he battled them all through four 
years on and off the Hill. It may be that he has torn a page 
from the notebook of II. G. Wells and found the secret of the 
Time Machine, but whatever the original source the result has 
been a Larry who refuses to be confined to one place, but who 
journeys far afield, both in the literal and figurative sense. 

As a practical Flyer Man his journeys all over the East in 
that blazing Ford roadster need only be mentioned. Mileage 
meant nothing to him except more space to be erased; time was 
but the brief period of going from one spot to another. 

In his ideas he has likewise flown, often far above us. His 
devotion to science presages great accomplishments on the part 
of our restless Portlandite. He has soared high, likewise, in 
our friendship and we recall pleasurably the jovial hours of com- 
radeship he brought vis.

It is not at all surprising to find young men, particularly col- 
lege men, lacking in dignity, restraint and sense of duty. We 
look for these qualities in maturity rather than youth, and 
hence it is a bit unexpected to meet a person like Bill, who, 
though vibrant with the spirit of youth, visions the future and 
seriously makes ready for its exactions. 

From the very beginning Doc arrested our attention. His 
balance, his poise and his air of responsibility made us realize 
that here was a man intent on a real education. Doc knew 
from the first what his goal was and he has pursued his course 
with an admirable singleness of purpose. 

The picture of Bill, as it stands, is incomplete, for it leaves 
him without the warmth of heart and appropriate friendliness 
that were his devoted to his friends as to his ends, Bill was 
essentially human.

Typical of all that a good fellow should be and yet possessed 
of an amazing ability for concentrated effort. Doc brought with 
him from New Haven a great versatility in sports and an inex- 
haustible fund of tales of the Elm City. A varsity baseball man 
for three years, a member of the championship intramural foot- 
ball team, and star goalie in hockey, his athletic ability w^ent 
without question. That he was chosen on the all-college foot- 
ball team and would have been a sure varsity hockeyman had 
the sport been continued only add to an already high athletic 

As for those tales of New Haven, any night in his room 
would find Doc expounding to listeners reasons for the great- 
ness of his home town and particularly of Hillhouse High. That 
he had us believing most of his yarns despite vociferous protest 
from residents of other Nutmeg State towns only goes to show 
the suave persuasiveness of the man. He was always ready to 
lend a hand in any class venture, thereby further adding to his 
standing as a willing worker and a loyal friend.

Steve enlarged rather than maintained the tradition of the 
Costello family at Holy Cross. A man of hrain and hravvn, wit 
and culture, an agile theorist and mental gymnast, this son of 
Maine ahsorhed in his makeup of a scholar and gentleman that 
which the Roman Terence sang gloriously of "Nothing human 
is foreign to me." 

Primarily a student, Steve displayed an aptitude for knowl- 
edge and reflection, a true measure of judgment, an unper- 
turbility of purpose, and a general affability toward deep prob- 
lems of thought and human conduct. Naturally in philosophy 
his greatness came to light. The master of disputation, the 
spirit of the circles, Steve rarely allowed Kant and his crew the 
even tenor of their ways unruffled by a philosophical barb or 
two. Essentially Catholic in character, he was essentially cath- 
olic in his outlook upon life and mankind. 

The fineness of his moulded personality, a personality born in 
the matrix of Christian principles and an honest culture, has 
had an undeniable influence upon the men of his own class and 
the school; certainly it is to be a potent force and power, a 
restraining influence, and an objective star of guidance without 
these walls.

A truly cultured youth, a sincere and earnest friend — such is 
Frank. His polished manner, his well-nigh perfect presence, 
his ease of speech, all these make him stand out. Not that 
Frank is a mechanical type — far from it. On the contrary he 
is a vital, glowing lad, with a love of life and an appreciation 
of what goes on about him. 

The Philomath has had few more faithful members, and 
Thursday nights more than once found him bringing the 
whole assemblage at the Leonard Debating Hall to his point 
of view. A compelling speaker, he wears down opponents by 
the stubborn sturdiness of his direct logic. This ability aided 
him no little when we entered the jungles of philosophy, and 
Frank has been among the leaders in the various treatises for 
two years. 

Consistent, steady, debonair and accomplished Frank need 
have no worries about the world. It cannot help but bow and 
make way for his firm and certain passage.

We need make no predictions as to the future of a man who, 
acquiring the jewelry concession and holding it through two 
years of unparalleled financial conditions, still made a success 
ot the venture. There can he no uncertainty about the pros- 
pects of one like Ken, who could perform a feat like that any- 
where and especially here at the Cross. 

Ken has given us more than one other indictaion of accom- 
plishments to come. As a varsity track man, he was a cour- 
ageous and heady hait-miler, adding many a welcome point to 
the Purple totals in various meets. In cross-country he soon 
won a regular berth, made a constant improvement and was 
elected to the captaincy in Senior year. 

Displaying a determination and application far above the 
ordinary. Ken worked hard at everything he did. Hence his 
deeds in every field have resulted from honest effort and deep- 
rooted sincerity. Needless to say we have wanted and valued 
his regard.

Albie is our model of energy plus efficiency, the one man who 
can perform a dozen tasks at once and still have time to argue 
philosophy and quote poetry. Visitors to his room never failed 
to marvel at the ease with which Jalbert could at the same 
time lead a conversation, address copies of the Purple to brother 
and sister colleges, do a bit of typing and smoke a cigarette in 
his own inimitable style — his eyes aflicker with interest and his 
pet Chinese cap reposing on his head. 

Businesslike to the nth degree, Al could always be depended 
on to know assigned matter and have notes for it typed neatly. 
He did not limit his activitv to studv however, as testified by 
the dramatic society and the Purple, both of which were aided 
considerably by his consistent efforts. 

Al almost left our ranks at the end of Sophomore year, but 
the urge was too great and he was back again for Junior, a bit 
late, to be sure, but in the flesh and decidedly welcome. We 
would have missed Jalbie during these last two years, just as 
we'll miss him now that he finally must leave us.

After breezing through Freshman year with little or no 
worry, Ed decided to try something a hit more difficult and 
accordingly cast his lot with the pre-meds. Not once in the 
three subsequent years has he been heard to regret his choice, 
but instead has followed his courses with a zeal and enthusi- 
asm characteristic of a real devotee to science. 

For all his lengthy efforts in the pre-med field, Ed has found 
time to lend his co-operation to several college activities. For 
pure art, his characterization of Prudence Truelove in our 
Senior Reception to the Freshmen was unsurpassed. Despite 
the wig's obvious tendency to slide over one eye, Ed made his 
playing of Prudence one of the hits of that laugh-provoking 

A fellow who can earn high marks in chem courses and 
meanwhile play seductive sirens on the stage needs no words 
to prove his versatility and adaptability. That's why we know 
Ed will be in the forefront in anything he does.

It took only the early weeks of Freshman year to make us 
appreciate Jack's worth as a conservative, steady and dependable 
classmate. He brought with him from Flatbush a solidity and 
sturdiness that has been called a New England characteristic, 
but it is a Brooklyn virtue to all who know Jack. 

Third Fenwick was the first habitat on the Hill for Jack, and 
his room in that now neglected corridor was as popular a gath- 
ering place for the conversational-minded as was his Third 
Loyola meeting-place. In those entertaining gatherings. Jack 
played an excellent straight man to Joe Mandry's rib-tickling 
humor. His own ^harp wit was often the source of some 
cutting irony. 

Always reliable when a task required a man of real deter- 
mination, Jack was often called on to shoulder responsibilities 
that would have staggered a chap of lesser proportions. It was 
because we knew him that we called on him so often.

!t takes a great youth to he tactful and forceful at once. We 
can say no more of Frank than that he went through two years 
as a head-waiter without making an enemy; he even made 
numerous friends in the process. Those of us who remember 
the advances of the hungry hordes can only shake our heads and 
marvel at the man. 

In the band, too, Frank, was a faithful and prominent mem- 
ber. For four years Frank has been high in the ranks of the 
Purple horn tooters. Every game and drill found Frank saying 
"Present," which is a record of some sort or other. "Dace" has 
also been in the foreground among the social lights of the 
class. The frequent trips of the Musical Clubs about the East 
left more than a few hearts fluttering at the presence of Frank 
and his curly locks. 

It is hard to predict how the Refectory can get along in the 
absence of Frank, but it will have to struggle on while the 
world learns to appreciate the many qualities that have made 
Frank our friend.

A picture can't do real justice to Tom. Envision six feet of 
lanky likeableness, a pair of Irish eyes, a contagious grin and 
you have a real portrait of this pride of Fitchburg. Wit was 
his main forte, and Tom pleasantly plagiarized the material of 
every prominent comedian to his listeners' delight. Newcomers 
to the ranks occasionally tried to protest only to realize that the 
humor was being dispensed with a high originality and a 
thoroughly personal touch. 

Behind his modesty, Tom was possessed of ability that he 
kept in readiness tor worth-while occasions. Not many of us 
knew his talents as an orator until this new Robert Emmett 
took the rostrum on a well-remembered occasion and pro- 
ceeded to deliver a speech that was brilliant in content and 

Elected to the presidency of the Fitchburg Club, Tom pro- 
ceeded to place that organization with the foremost of the 
undergraduate clubs. Thanks to him the club has enjoyed the 
greatest year in its history, adding more laurels to Tom's brow.

The prielc and joy oi the bus company, the lad with the ear 
to ear grin that could melt the hearts of stern professors, the 
Oxford branch of the Worcester Club — Alex! We used to 
wonder in those early freshman days at the regularity in which 
the Oxford bus stopped at the loot of the Hill each morning; 
we became indebted to this same vehicle when we learned that 
its mission was to bring A! into our midst and to add an extra 
bit of sunshine, rain or shine day, to our dispositions. 

Expansively good natured, Al's presence did the provocative 
thing in making us hit on all fours; and when he toured the 
rooms at lunch hour with his Oxfordian witticisms, we rarely 
hesitated in being lulled to a sanity of humor. Modest as he 
was, his quiet depth of seriousness lay hidden in his devotion 
to the pre-med course, and only his figure at work or in research 
at all hours in the library led us to discern what lay beneath a 
healthy smile.

"Ten little fingers, ten little toes, wouldn't count all that Lee 
Dante does." A bit of a crippled rhyme, but certainly it would 
be a sorry mess if you tried to rhyme Trigger with any definite 
type or pattern. He was different, unique, unusual in the best 
sense. He did so much and so well, initiated and carried 
through uncounted undertakings, sang curricular and extra-cur- 
ricular in high c, that there is little left save to wonder if he 
could have possibly missed anything. 

The only thing we might affirm as missing at present is a 
mustache. Not long ago he was a member of the famed Purple 
Zilch Mustache Club, and when the depression annihilated the 
other members, it remained for Lee to keep the stiff upper lip 
in hair. 

Medals, honors in studies, head of a club and a society, are 
but few patent examples of his endeavor. He was a good shot 
in all things and proved it by founding the Rifle Club at the 
Cross. A fine conversationalist, Lee's stories have often held us 
spellbound. At least one chap has held Lee spellbound him- 
self by asserting ignorance of what hominy was; it had this 
militant Southerner aghast. By the way, what is hominy, Lee?

Don is an illustrious member of the community at Paines- 
ville, Ohio, and he insists that Cleveland is near his home town 
and not vice versa. The Rotarian spirit must burn brightly 
in Ohio, for no slur on the Mid-West goes unnoticed when Don 
is in the company. Four years or having Painesville serve as an 
object of comment, mostly unkind, has reconciled Don and he 
now smiles serenely through any attempt to get a rise. 

His deceptive silence made him go unappreciated until we 
realized that Don was playing an essential part in making suc- 
cesses of school activities. The work he did for the Purple Key 
during the past year was deservedly acclaimed. We often 
regretted that lab hours kept him from us a great part of the 
time for he brought into any gathering a wholesome spirit of 
fun and humor. 

Having occupied a reserved suite in the Winter Garden dur- 
ing one never-to be-forgotten season, he earned the name of 
Darrett, a title pronounced with a decided roll of R's. No one 
cause brought about the name, according to the christeners, but 
rather a series of happenings that had to be avenged in some 
wav. His section-mates can assert that he was an outstanding 
scientist in B.S.; all of us vouch for the fact that he is a grand 
chap in every respect.

The A. A. efficiency corps would have been sadly incomplete 
without the presence of Tom. No one else had his tact and 
graciousness in convincing football and baseball patrons that 
they were in the wrong seats and would do him a personal 
favor by taking the right places. That he could do this difficult 
and trying task without offense is a strong proof of Tom's per- 
sonality; it is even rumored that members of the fair sex sat in 
the wrong seats just so he would move them. 

Particularly active in the Worcester Club, Tom's efforts on 
behalf of that group were deserving of the praise he received. 
Any committee work entrusted to him could be depended on 
to be done thoroughly and effectively. 

Electing to major in the field of education, Tom brought to 
that course a characteristic enthusiasm and a will to work. The 
rank he achieved came naturally from his efforts. Even-tem- 
pered always, devoted to his friends, honest in all things, Tom 
was and is a friend to treasure.

Unofficial corridor-caller extraordinary, scholastic philosopher 
par excellence, leader ot the three showers a day movement, 
Phil played an important part in the life of Second Loyola and 
the entire class. Countless are the demerits he saved by his 
good-natured efforts to rouse his corridor-mates at seven 
o'clock on winter mornings; he was invited to perform the task 
because he was the only man on the corridor certain to rise 
early every morning. Even Sunday and holiday mornings found 
Phil out of bed at ghastly hours; he is the one man in the class 
who never attended the 10.30 Mass on Sundays. 

Remarkably apt in keeping his temper, Phil was the essence 
of serenity. One incident in which tear gas figured almost 
upset him, but he was laughing with the rest in a very few 
minutes. Nights before philosophy exams found him in great 
demand, and he was invariably generous and gracious in dis-

Lou, with his unceasing fund of funny stories, his soothing 
Southern drawl, and his uncanny ability at impersonation, has 
become an institution at college gatherings of any importance. 
No smoker, reception, rally or banquet can even hope to be 
complete without the presence of the cigar-chewing lad from 

It was way back in Freshman year that Louie, coming down 
from the icy draughts of the Blue Room, convulsed a capacity 
crowd at our reception to the upperclassmen. Since then, he's 
seldom had a rest; he's always been in demand for some activ- 
ity or other. Who can forget his "Dr. Rockwell;" or that 300- 
word-a-minute "Groucho Marx" of his; or.? but the list is 
almost inexhaustible. 

If ever a youth brightened the hours of his friends, if ever there 
was a humorist who was always good-natured, always uncom- 
plaing — then it is our Louie. With the fast-working brain that 
hides beneath that red thatch of his. Lou can be counted on to 
take advantage of every opportunity that comes his way.

George was not one ot those tabled day-duckers who 
"trudged up the hill every morning." After coming in from 
the wilds of Spencer every class day lor tour years, one does not 
trudge, one either skips or strolls. George, depending on the 
day and mood, did both. Being essentially light-hearted he 
perhaps skipped more often than strolled, but that is beside the 

To the activities of the Crusader Council, the Worcester Club 
and the Sodality, George brought an earnestness and willing- 
ness to co-operate that soon singled him out. The modern 
virtue of co-operation was his to an enviable degree, and more 
than one extra-curricular success owes much to him. 

Our contacts with George led us more than once to envy 
those Spencerites who could enjoy his homely humor and 
crackling wit all the day long. We hope that they appreciated 
him as much as have we here on the Hill.

Hardly one of the Worcester delegation came to our notice 
and friendship more quickly and easdy than Joe. A few days 
of acquaintance with him made us feel, thanks to his friendli- 
ness, that we had been hoon companions for years. He has 
kept and added to this feeling all through our years of esteem 
for him, and we envy the Worcesterites forunate enough to be 
his friends when we leave Pakachoag. 

We felt no hesitancy ahout asking favors ot Joe; he was 
invariably ready and willing to do anything that he could for 
us. Activities that had his support needed little else; Joe could 
be depended on for prodigious work and self-effacing endeavor. 
It was only natural that he should rank as a leader in day- 
hopper ranks. 

His Section B accomplishments of Soph and Junior years are 
campus history; no one else could have Joe's savor fa/re in the 
face of hot professorial questioning, his facility in expounding 
the matter, and his complete absence of nervousness. Joe is 
one reason why we dislike thoughts of leaving the Heart of 
the Commonwealth.

Our perennial Peter Pan, Kmpty has wended his way blithely 
through four years in a decidedly unperturbed fashion. More 
than once his perfect aplomb has made us envy him his citizen- 
ship in the Never-Never land and wish that we could keep for- 
ever some of the magic he scattered wherever he went. 

Even Peter Pan must be practical, so Tom not only was more 
than successful in studies but managed to win himself a high 
place in the list of activities. He took his fling at baseball, made 
a name for himself in various tennis tournaments, and devoted 
the winter months to skating. And what skating! Feminine 
hearts at Elm Park almost stopped beating when this airily 
graceful lad pirouetted on his blades. Clever at fancy skating, 
amazingly fast in competition, and thoroughly at home on the 
ice, Tom was our leading exponent of his native Adirondack 

Prominent in K. of C. artivities, Tom won an office in Cru- 
sader Council, and quite ably fulfilled the post. Everything he 
entered had a new zest and spirit when our Holy Cross Peter 
Pan came along.

Despite his lack of weight, he was a brilliant halfback and 
won himself a starting berth on the football team as a sopho- 
more. Fast, shifty, quick to change pace and deceptively elu- 
sive he was a great broken-field runner, a fine pass receiver and 
an exceptionally good defensive back. On the boards and 
cinders he added to the Donovan track accomplishments as a 
dash man. 

The qualities of determination, courage and sportsmanship 
that distinguished him on the atheltic field were present in all 
his relations and no campus figure had more friends and ad-

Head-waiters and suavity go hand in hand, and when we say 
that Ed was the head-waiter ideal we need not add that he was 
the owner of a tact and graciousness almost beyond belief. With 
his roomie, Frank Dacey. he headed the stall at the Emporium, 
doing an excellent job of it. 

Lending his musical ability to Mr. Bouvier's organization, 
Ed became a shining light in the Philharmonic Orchestra. A 
director's dream, he was invariably present at rehearsal, an 
accomplishment supreme in itself. The football band claimed 
his attention in the fall months, and he was likewise faithful to 
that purple-caped crew. 

Eager to lend aid to any worth-while program of activity, Ed 
was one of the few who thought seriously before accepting any 
plan of action. That the spirit of good-fellowship was not 
foreign to him is evident from the number and quality of his

Harvard must have been a bit unwary when she let this son 
of Cambridge elude her and cast his lot with the Crusaders of 
Holy Cross. For sturdy reliability and genuine trustworthiness 
Jack has few equals; that he is also possessed of a charm com- 
pletely subduing all it meets is but another bit of evidence to the 
fact that he is a man quite apart from the ordinary run. 

Display and Jack are at opposite poles and realization of all 
he has done must necessarily come from some other source. 
Reticent, without being unduly so, friendly, without being 
ostentatious, Jack was a disciple of Horace in espousing the 
golden mean. Not at all impulsive or precipitate, he gave care- 
ful thought to any proposal, but once adopting it he gave to it 
all the energy and ability he possessed. His support, silent and 
unheralded though it often was, gave a decided impetus to any 
undertaking. Real accomplishment has been his.

We will he very much surprised if any joh ever proves too 
irksome and laborious for the industrious Ed. As business 
manager or the (dee Club he had to attend the thousand and 
one trying details of arranging concerts, housing, transportation 
and meals. The near-miraculous success he has won in this 
field is proof enough of his business and executive ability. 

As manager ot two intramural championship teams in Sopho- 
more year, Ed set a mark for successors to shoot at. Not con- 
tent with that record, he set a new one, that of being fired and 
hired three times in two days at the refectory. It will be hard 
to forget the night of Ed's debut as a reception entertainer, 
when, supported by a chorus of husky Third Fenwick chorus 
girls, he sang his way through "On Wisconsin." 

Following the course of accomplishment that he has already 
partly traversed, Ed's arrival at his goal, say we who know him, 
is almost a certainty.

Intramural sports were the avocation of our imperturable 
Walt. Christened the Blond Blizzard during the first afternoon 
of intramural football in Freshman year, the appellation has 
clung to the good-natured Wakefieldite through four years of 
more than moderate success on the intramural athletic field. 
Football, baseball and hockey have all claimed his attention in 
season and his ability has been of considerable aid to his various 
corridor aggregations. 

An ambitious student, Walt has expended more than the 
usual energy in the field of study. He studies hard, just as he 
plays hard. His work, thanks to his efforts, has been con- 
sistently successful, and never has he given any evidence of 
undue strain. His efforts as Top Loyola songbird were not 
unheard but were certainly unappreciated by callous corridor- 
mates. Still unperturbed, the Blizzard sings on.

Though presenting a rather serious aspect to those who have 
not learned to know him, his intimates can testily that his 
humor is crackling and edervescent. His wit is sharp and 
dry and he is continually offering Will Rogerisms that often 
better the original. 

Kurdens are taken in a matter-of-fact way by Bill; he goes 
his way undisturbed and placid. He not only marched through 
the B.S. course, but fount! time for lengthy and profitable 
experimentation in the field of photography. His achievements 
in that field have been remarkable, yet no word of them has 
ever passed his lips, proving his possession ot modesty of the 
higher sort. Determined and undemonstrative. Bill is a man 
of essential worth.

Smiling his way through some of the toughest breaks a man 
could get, Steve's sportsmanship has been a quality to marvel 
at and admire. After a brilliant start as a freshman pitcher, 
Steve had the misfortune of having an ailing arm keep him 
from becoming one of the Purple's regular hurlers. All the 
requisites of a great pitcher were his, speed, curves, control and 
brains, but an arm that refused to respond to treatment kept 
him from attaining pitching success. Philosophical about his 
heart-breaking misfortune, Steve showed us a gameness and 
courage that would be hard to equal. 

Earnest and intent in all he set out to do, Steve was a self- 
sacrificing friend, glad to help on any occasion. He grinned at 
fortune and misfortune alike, taking both like a man, and win- 
ning himself considerable respect in the process. A sportsman 
in every respect, he played the game every moment.

Erudite and debonair, Ed is a broad and cultured young man 
of discriminating taste, decided individuality and keen insight. 
Eiterary in his leanings and preferences, he has made his mark, 
on the Hill as a critic, conversationalist and writer. The out- 
side world recognized his critical ability with the publication 
in Columbia of his splendid essay on Hilaire Belloc as a poet. 

Seeking all he can in the held of broad knowledge, Ed has 
been active in the affairs of the Philomath, History Academy 
and Dramatic Society. To all he brought a keen interest and 
an intelligent curiosity; from them he gathered much that was 
valuable and helpful. Not content with surface meanings, he 
probed deep into all subjects, exacting finally a knowledge that 
was thorough and of practical application. 

Concerned only with what appeals to him as valuable and 
memorable, Ed won our regard by the direct way in which he 
carried out his purposes. Not satisfied with opinions he studied 
and evaluated for himself and to his own advantage. Holy 
Cross has prepared him; opportunity will find him ready.

Disputes, philosophical, political, social and otherwise, ended 
with the entrance of Peter Adelard; it took but a few moments 
of his forceful eloquence and incisive criticism to show the one 
and only conclusion that could possibly be reached. Knowing 
him as we did, we could but marvel at the swiftness of his 
brain and the invariable correctness of his judgments. 

This skill at deduction, plus a native wit and a glittering 
expression, made Peter a brilliant conversationalist, and, what 
is more, one whose words carried weight. More than once, on 
the platform at Fenwick, Peter's keen logic cleared up difficul- 
ties for those of us less gifted. 

But we valued Peter not only for his scholarship and keen- 
ness, but for his friendliness and geniality. More than once

After starring on the freshman basketball team and winning 
his letter with the varsity in Sophomore, Joe was deprived of 
further opportunity tor fame as a hoopster when the net game 
was dropped as a varsity sport. Junior and Senior years found 
him outstanding in intramural basketball and as a member of 
an independent team that compiled a fine record. 

Joe's tenor voice has been raised in song since his first day 
on the Hill. It has aided the Choir, lent color to the Glee 
Club and provided some great entertainment at banquets and 
receptions. His Cab Calloway imitation is still in great demand 
wherever he goes. Once, just to prove his determination, he 
sang the same song from New York to Worcester, completely 
subduing an interfering band of horn-tooters. 

Resourceful and possessed of great initiative, Joe has suc- 
ceeded in all he undertook throughout tour years on the Hill. 
Graduation finds him taking with him our liking of him as an 
athlete, an entertainer and an all round good-fellow.

Perhaps the best-read man at Holy Cross, it is characteristic 
of johndee that his voluminous library is located not only in his 
own room, hut has branches in several other habitats on Second 
Loyola. First of all, despite the cases and troughs, the books 
are too many for one room, and secondly, John likes and wants 
his friends to gain pleasure from anything that is his. 

His verse began to attract our attention in the Purple in 
Freshman year, and has continued to do so ever since. He is 
the only undergraduate poet whose works are really read, pon- 
dered over and discussed. Sometimes his verse is delicate and 
fanciful, another it is revealing and realistic, still again it is 
experimental and unique. Hut always it is thoroughly absorb- 
ing in content and exquisite in expression. 

He would be the first to protest at being called an intellectual, 
hut he is, in the highest sense of the word. But, better still, 
he has been a human and admirable fellow, winning our 
admiration and attracting our friendship.

The library and Marty were linked inseparably all through 
our years on the Hill; no member of the class could think of one 
without the other. The fact that he was a star member of the 
staff did not keep the pleasant-faced Southbridge lad from tak- 
ing advantage of the library's opportunities; he read and studied 
conscientiously and intelligently. 

Marty's smile behind the desk helped more than a little to 
lighten up the severity and solemnity of the reading room. 
And when one needed help in locating a volume, Marty was 
always willing, even anxious, to help. Many are the books he 
routed from some obscure corner of the stacks for a worried 
searcher. His record as a book-finder for four years was per- 
fect; he almost missed on one memorable occasion but a fur- 
ther check disclosed that the book sought had been already 

In class and on the campus Marty has been just as friendly 
and co-operative as he was in the pillared building atop the too- 
numerous steps. He takes back to Southbridge the gratitude 
and friendship of us all.

When Tom joined our ranks, a bit belatedly, we had reason 
to cheer and throw out our arms in welcome, for he brought 
us invaluable friendliness and sincerity. An affable, easy- 
going gentleman in his off-moments, Tom could be serious and 
painstaking when the need arose. 

Extra-curricular activities took up much of his attention, and 
whether it was the Vermont Club, or intra-mural sports, Tom 
was always in the van. Characteristically, he gave unsparingly 
of time and effort to all. 

Tom had his lighter moments, too. Who has not heard of 
his Lonely Hearts Club, that organization whose aim it was to 
nurture budding romances and plant the seed of new ones? 
Tom, of course, was president and official correspondent for 
this famous First Loyola organization. The fact that its suc- 
cess was more theoretical than real was not Tom's fault; you 
just can't improve on nature. 

Men like Tom are hard to find, but, once found, hard to 
forget. That's why he'll live long in the memories of all of us.

Were we limited to one word in describing Frank, that word 
would undoubtedly he — Sincerity. It is a quality that has 
marked and characterized him since his arrival here from the 
heart of the picturesque Berkshire's. Frank has been sincere in all 
his dealings, quietly and honestly so. Blended with eagerness 
and restraint, that trait has made his society sought and his 
advice heeded. 

Musically inclined, he gave his talents to Mr. Bouvier's aggre- 
gation ot hopefuls and tor tour years he was a part of every 
college musical event. The football hand was his love, and no 
one dared utter a word against the group while Frank was 

To say he was quiet would be to do an injustice to this lad, 
for it would tail to take into account the fact that he knew 
when, and where to be silent. But when noise and fun were 
in order, North Adams' favorite son could often be found 
among the leaders of the frolickers. Even in his fun he stayed 
within limits, staying far away from the extremes that he 
always avoided.

Known previously only to a select tew. we can now announce 
to the public at large that there was such an organization as 
the Vernon Hill Ramblers Societ\. founded and headed by 
the affable Carl. After pondering the idea for two years, he 
swung into action in Junior year and organized the society 
that was to rouse Worcester society. Carefully choosing his 
men, he enrolled but a few under his banner, and after modest 
beginnings, saw his brain-child thrive and flourish this past 

Known to his fellow prc-meds as "the man of many hours," 
Carl made a name for himself in the lab as an expert dissecter 
of rabbits, stray cats and occasional unfortunate mice. Char- 
acteristically persistent, he was painstaking in all his lab experi- 
ments as in all his other helds. He pondered before acting, 
but once he made up his mind, there was no turning this placid 
Teuton from his path. His energy and industry won our 
admiration, as his geniality won our bearts.

"The Pride of Shrewsbury Street"' was the appellation fast- 
ened on the burly Mike way back in Sophomore year when 
he was first attracting the notice of spectators and the fear of 
opponents on the football field. We have known and respected 
Mike for his determination and sincerity in all he undertook, 
have no hesitancy in supplementing that phrase with another, 
"The Pride of Holy Cross." 

Beset by injuries all through his football career, Mike won 
wide admiration for the game and philosophical way in which 
he accepted his misfortune. When he was able to perform on 
the gridiron, he invariably struck terror into opponents by his 
speedy diagnosis of enemy plays, his furious tackling, and his 
unstoppable charging. 

Entrusted with the chairmanship of dances by the Worcester 
Club, he devoted himself to the affairs' success and invariably 
put them over. When friendship was needed, he gave it; 
when cooperation was sought, he was among the first to vol- 
unteer. Possessed ot a naive sincerity and a characteristic 
friendliness, Iron Mike is high up in our ranks.

Boston could have done 33 no greater favor than that of 
sending us as thorough a gentleman as Bob. It took us only 
weeks to learn that here was a lad who was dependable and 
trustworthy, one whose quiet culture was not openly displayed 
but nevertheless truly characteristic. 

Once the borders of intimacy were passed Bob was a thor- 
oughly delightful friend. Conversation with him was truly an 
art; his words were sound and timely. Nor was he too much 
inclined to the serious. The noble art of wrestling flourished 
in his rooms and all comers were gaily welcomed. The fact 
that some of these sportive events soon took on the aspect of a 
general room-wrecking did not discompose our Bostonian 
friend one whit. "We'll fix it later," he'd say and the merry 
bloodshed would go on. 

It'd be hard to find another like Bob, one who has found the 
middle path of the ancients and strolled or gamboled along it 
as he and the occasion saw fit.

With his unceasing wise-cracks and his "New Yorkcsc," 
Bernie early won a high place in the esteem oi '33. The years 
since freshman have made us realize that he is more than an 
entertainer, that he is capable of real achievement. Witness th:' 
very creditable winter hop he managed lor the K. ol C. as a 
striking example. 

Bernie was one of the first to discover the -possibilities oi the 
Pakachoag course, and his interest in the ancient game of goll 
led to his selection as manager ol this year's links team. I Ic 
arranged a noteworthy schedule, and proved himsell that idea! 
of athletic directors, a manager who didn't get the whole world 
worrying about details. 

On those cold autumn days Bernie was a familiar figure in 
the press-box, whenever Holy Cross was playing. As "spotter" 
he was worth his weight in gold to harassed sports writers who 
wanted to know, "Who made that tackier" His ability in this 
exacting role won Bernie the plaudits ol sports writers all over 
the East, and a game without Fee "announcing" was lacking 
one of its most colorful features. 

One ol '33's most colorful members, Bernie will be hard to 
lorget. We envy those with whom he will come in contact, lor 
Bernie cannot help but bring the m the cheer and comradeship 
he gave us here on the Hill.

Our memoirs of happy collegiate years will never he com- 
plete without the inclusion ot this elongated Albanian. The 
mention ot the name Feily, alone, will he all that is needed to 
cause vivid recollections of a delightful year spent in his 

Returning to college after a two vear ahseuce, he had to 
make himself known to a strange class. But it was an easj 
thing for this likable Empire Stater to make acquaintances, 
even though he did not participate in extra-curricular activities. 

Personality is an act of selling oneself — joe certainly did 
that — and not only did we accept what he offered in the way 
of the Feily personality, hut also bought what he sold, for Joe 
was one of those very progressive young salesmen that are so 
numerous up here on the hill. It was ludicrous to see a fellow 
attempt to manifest that so-termed sales resistance when Joe 
offered his high-powered line of salesmanship. 

Naturally a good conversationalist, a story-teller versed in 
the ways of life, and the possessor of a splendid repertoire of 
mirth-provoking anecdotes, there was never anv danger ol 
that embarrassing lull in the conversation when foe was 
present. And as our parting informal shot — a great "Guy" 
and a real friend.

Fit/, represents a versatility that all of us must somehow ad- 
mire and aspire to. His were the virtues and talents that al- 
lowed initiative and lahor to he spread in many fields, that 
brought to them an enthusiasm and organization power, that 
definitely made him outstanding in our midst. 

A list of his achievements at school reads long and excellent. 
Fitz was primarily and prominently, and we might say emi- 
nently, the journalist and author. The Purple's pages often 
held his short stories, poetry and criticism; The Tomahawks 
his vital editorials. At the same time he acted as correspondent 
for several papers, engaged in a newspaper controversy, and 
often dashed off some mighty fine verse for the Boston news- 
papers. Nor was his person absent from other fields. He took 
up oratory, becoming a talented one, entered intramural sports, 
won his coveted letter as Freshman Baseball Manager, directed 
the courses of the Waterbury Club, and found a little extra 
moment in which to found the Purple Zilch Club in Junior year. 

We would be unduly ignorant and uncharitable if as a class 
we did not recognize and commend the labor and spirit which 
Fitz moulded into the making of the Patcher of '33. His tre- 
mendous task and exceptional performance ranks him second 
to none as a recipient of praise for the edition of the present 
volume. We are all humbly grateful!

In years to come the name ot Lou Flaherty will always he 
connected even for those among us who knew him least, with 
a certain dignihed chivalry, compounded, no doubt ot that 
affable, courteous, obliging disposition which has evinced itsell 
so forcibly throughout his college career. Lou is hrst and 
foremost a "man's man." 

Someone has called a sense of humor a saving grace. In 
Lou's case it is a Godsend. Can any classmate ever forget that 
highly infectious, chuckling laugh: The answer is emphatic- 
ally "No." As a student he has few peers. An honor man 
since his Freshman year, it was not until his last two years that 
he came into his own. Philosophy was. trulv, fresh and blood 
to him. 

After class Lou liked best to hike. Few there were indeed 
to dispute his claim to champion in this field of sport. We 
don't know to what held of endeavor he will devote his ener- 
gies after leaving Holy Cross, but we may safely predict a 
brilliant and successful future for one of the best-liked fellows 
in the class.

The bosom friend ol our football captain, and his comrade 
through our college years, it was only right that the red- 
thatched Jim should substitute when an injury forced "Cap" 
out ot the lineup last iall. Fighting for |im. Red played an 
inspired game at tackle all season, opening holes, ripping 
enemv lines and making ringing tackles. Though the gallant 
Red had not seen much previous service on the varsity, his 
exhibitions last year won the plaudits of every fan in the stands. 

He has been displaying talent like that in the pinches all 
through our days at the Cross. When we needed a chairman 
for our Sophomore reception, he stepped trom the background 
to organize and direct a program that scored a smashing hit. 

His Celtic grin and his warm "Hi" have helped spread his 
sunshine all over the campus. He is everyone's friend, sympa- 
thizer and adviser, and he takes back with him to Maine our ad- 
miring friendship and our sincere respect.

Arc you bothered with a problem: It so, just call on this 
Northern gentleman to extricate you with diplomacy. His artis- 
tic mouldings ot the unshapely clay of truth presents an ardu- 
ous task to find a parallel in history. His knowledge or when 
the situation calls tor the low voice — the clenched hand and 
the broken whisper is paralleled only by that of Shakespeare 

But none applied himself more diligently to the books than 
this gentleman so well versed in the gentler art of persuasion. 
Four years have brought no dimming of his "Joie De Vivre," 
for Pete has a sense of humor rare among the sophisticates of a 
crass and materialistic world. Even in the collegiate atmosphere 
of quips, quibbles, quarrels, puns and pranks, there is some- 
thing solid and tranquillizing about this Portlandite. 

His is the touch of the artist — the soother of unsettled minds. 
Hence we hope some day to see him turn author and let the 
rest of us know, how, when, what to do.

There is no more genial and entertaining a chap than this 
friendly son of Holyoke. Blessed with wit remarkable for a 
product of even as Irish a city as the one near Mt. Tom, Si has 
left grins and chuckles behind him through four years. Even 
the rigors of the pre-med course tailed to take from him a 
characteristic light-heartedness that has made a welcome mem 
ber of any gathering, social or otherwise. 

Si did not confine himself to curricular affairs; on the field 
of intramural sports he was a familiar figure and his hearty 
enthusiasm marked him there as in the classroom and on the 
corridors. He gave valuable support to his teams in interclass 
basketball and football, meanwhile having a merry time himself. 
His serious efforts, devoted to the Sanctuary Society and the 
Sodality, were likewise noteworthy. 

Spirit like Si's is contagious and we know that everywhere 
he goes he will be as well-liked and appreciated as he was by us 
who have smiled through four years with him.

Coming two pages alter his companion and confidante ot 
iour years, this is probably the farthest apart that Mert and 
Pete have been since Freshman days. They studied, they 
played and they vacationed together, each one bringing a 
striking individuality to a notable friendship. Mert has been 
the unruffled, nonchalant and persuasive member of the duo. 

Business problems have failed to daunt him, either in theory 
or practice. He proved the first by his acknowledged success 
in the Economics courses; he demonstrated the second by man- 
aging a Christmas dance for the Portlandites and making it a 
financial success despite the depression and unfavorable cir- 

Honorary president of the small men's club, he made that 
body a group to respect, for his accomplishments in the class- 
room and on the athletic field gave evidence of a quick brain 
and an india-rubber body. He had the faculty of knowing 
when to expend energy, a trait that will stand him in good 
stead when he starts on a career.

Unobtrusively winning confidences and gaining lnendship 
tor tour years, Leo has just made vis realize that he has been a 
powerful factor in the deeds ol '33. It has taken us a long time- 
to realize how important a classmate Leo has been, but our 
delay will not keep us from praising and valuing his friendship. 

Electing to enroll in the ranks ol those who sought to 
explore the land ol economics, Leo was perhaps the only chap 
in that group who did not occasionally rant and rave over 
balance-sheets and ledgers. He fell from his high estate only 
once, and then he spent a whole night debating whether he 
should throw his Schuman or his Kester out the window. 
Outside ol that one occasion, he kept his serenity and his 
temper despite the waitings ot Ins fellow victims. 

It is useless to say that lie lias made our years at the Cross 
pleasanter ones, lor our modest Newportian would certainly 
say, "Don't lie silly."

Included in the score or more Xavier candidates tor Holy 
Cross was Harry Beeman Furay. So in September 1929 he 
commenced four years of lively indoor activity by rooming 
with his restless schoolmate, Ed Hidalgo. It must he recalled 
that the veritable museum which was tlvir happy home on 
third O'Kane, second Alumni, second Beaven and finally sec- 
ond Loyola was always the scene of arguments, billows ot 
smoke, make-up testing tor the Monster Club, political 
machinations and all the busy clamor of a revolutionary news- 
paper in hot action. 

Harrys outside activities delighted Worcester's business 
section. Theater managers knew him by his first name, while 
the Mannixes counted that a dull day when Harry did not 
barge in to chance that restaurant into a circus, a meal into a 
vaudeville act. But his versatility is not limited to this. Harry 
was seldom the outdoor boy. but when he was, then those low 
'80s meant something on a golf course. Our only regret was 
that Harry would never "hole out" the talents with which he. is 
so gifted. But there will be plentj of days and years ahead 
for that sort of thing, and those days will soon dawn brightly 
for this gay New Yorker.

In those distant Freshman (.lays when day students were 
those strange creatures who came to class every day and then 
disappeared. Bill was one of the hrst to make us realize what 
a likeable crew they were. His ready smile and friendly "Hi" 
helped rid many of us oi the strangeness and newness of those 
first months on the Hill. 

The years since then have hut confirmed our original 
opinion and made us like Kill the more. A good-natured, 
helpful soul. Bill is everybody's friend. Many are the tales ot 
woe that have been poured into his sympathetic ears; invariable 
were his encouragement and helpfulness. You can tell things 
to Bill; he'll always understand and help. 

In class, in intramural sports, in the activities of the Worces- 
ter Club and the Day Students Sodality, Bill was ever willing 
to work, to do what he could. He'll go through life that way, 
always working and helping out others. He's that kind of a 
fellow, than which we can sav no more.

For years Ed was plagued with the noisiest of roommates, 
yet never caught their hlatant disease. As a roommate he was 
perfect: Ed knew when and how to study, but never per- 
mitted that good habit to become a vice; light-adjusting, clock- 
setting and a liberal interpretation of late sleeps were arts as 
he practiced them. Luckily for him, outside activities did not 
alwavs monopolize his easy hours, so he found opportunity to 
pull on a jacket and go for a tramp over the hills, to act as host 
for the conversationalists, the radio fans and the constant vis- 
itors to his room, and to accompany his friends on explorations 
of Worcester. And most often he had a patient ear and ready 
sympathy for their ever-varying moods and frequent confi- 
dences. Ed's pet complaints were indeed rare, and his happy 
moments were days and months in duration. 

Ed wants to teach. And in him students will recognize a 
teacher quick to reward sincere efiort and ability, a patient and 
unassuming guide to knowledge. Marks? Let Ed's pupils 
expect full credit for their work, plus a generous percentage for 
reciprocating the loyalty that is his. That makes 100%. And 
that makes Ed. So his must be the portion ol the white-haired

Riding out oi what we, despite his expostulations, insist is the

tour yeais ol study. Of knowledge he has gained much hut of 
culture there was little that an academic course could add to the 
innate gentlemanliness ol a man like Gard. 

When the RiHe Club came into being he was one of the 
prime movers, and his experience as a reserve officer served him 
in good stead. That the infant organizations has grown and 
flourished is attributable in large part to his determined efforts. 
The Crusader Council, too, availed itseli of his willing and 
eager efforts, as did the Sociality and the Sanctuary Society. 

An enthusiastic follower of modern literature. Gard majored 
in elective English, helping many a less widely-read fellow-stu-

Johnny was one-halt of one of the class' outstanding sets of 
inseparable roommates: one can hardly think of him without 
likewise adding Ken Cuneo. Difficult indeed would it be to 
hnd two more fellows who supplemented each other as well 
and as thoroughly as these. 

Coming from the backyard of Forest Hills, Johnny soon 
introduced to the mysteries of tennis balls that almost talked 
at his command. Twists, spins and curves, all kinds and all 
varieties were the magic that baffled those unfortunate enough 
to meet Jack on the courts. At times it was positively uncanny. 

Another member of the B.S. corps, Johnny worked long and 
diligently in the many hours required. But once outside the 
classroom he took his place as a bright conversat.onalist who 
always had something interesting to say. When he had any- 
thing to say, those who appreciated Johnny knew that it would 
be worth while hearing, and they were seldom disappointed.

In every class there is that select group who seem to overcome 
scholastic barriers with the utmost facility, the group who con- 
sider studies in a superlatively lax manner, yet whose scholastic 
standings will bear the closest examination. In such a category 
we posit "Dinny." No doubt there are situations that call tor a 
tear instead of a laugh, but "Dinny" has yet to encounter them. 
If there was a chuckle or a roar in a classroom you could be sure 
that he had a share in it if he was anywhere near the scene of 
the disturbance. He had many playful tricks, yet his ready 
grin saved him more than once from his just deserts. In spite 
of his tricks however, he was the friend of many. 

He was a staunch supporter of the Worcester Club and he 
helped make its dances a success, if only by his presence. And 
so we bid farewell to this well liked Worcesterite who takes 
things as they come, who smiles at things others would worry 
about, the boy with the serious face and twinkling eye.

Cast by fate in the extremely difficult role of class youngest, 
Ozzie has come through like the thoroughbred that he is, win- 
ning our thorough admiration in the process. Smiling his way 
through a Freshman year ot unmerciful kidding, he graduated 
from the prodigy class into the ranks of those whom we feel

Xo one without the essential sportsmanship and sincerity of 
Oz could have acquitted himself as nobly as he did. Few in 
the class have won as much respect for character as this hard- 
working product ot Newport, with his unfailing good-humor 
and simple straightforwardness. He wended his way success- 
fully through three hard years of pre-medical work, and only

For pre-med to find time to indulge in various extra-curricu- 
lar activities is rare enough, but when he wins the school tennis 
title, plays with and manages his corridor baseball team, is 
active in the Aquinas Circle and the Scientific Society, then it 
is time to ask whether a new miracle has come to pass. Jack, 
however, has taken it all very casually, as if it were the accepted 

The tact and diplomacy he had to exercise in managing his 
corridor-mates on the baseball field would alone entitle him to 
recognition, but he has done other things as well. In the class- 
room there was no more faithful and conscientious student. In 
the laboratory there was no more ambitious scientist, and on

We envy those med students who will but make his acquaint-

a personality that was serious, admirable and engaging.

Hardly a single event in recent years has so influenced and 
impressed Holy Cross as the Senior Banquet oration of 1933. 
The speech that a spellbound audience heard that night incor- 
porated and climaxed the history, talents and powers of a 
respected and distinguished man. 

It is remarkable how immediately in 1929 his energy, his 
sane and square thinking, the power of his pen and oratory, 
made him an indispensable figure. The class still remembers 
how, as a Freshman, Ed was called into action in the momen- 
tous debate against Boston College. From that night Holy 
Cross never faced a serious opponent without his eloquence and 
depth of thought. 

He always contributed a tone of dignity and reassurance 
which made his fellowman conscious of the elements of great- 
ness. Unable to ever satisfy himself with superficiality in 
thought, friendship, duty or action, unwilling to ever compro- 
mise with the dictates of principle and common sense he im- 
pressed his every product with the seal of penetration and pro- 
foundness. In this one man we have discovered all the sym- 
pathy of understanding, the good humor of real wisdom, the 
determination of genuine character, and the force of full talents. 
With his editorials he molded thought, with his eloquence he 
stirred action, with his presence he evoked respect. To Ed 
belong all the rewards of greatness and all the greatness of

It took us a while to get beyond the compound ot dignity 
and modesty that is Tom, but once we penetrated this wall of 
reserve we lound another true son ol Holy Cross. Once having 
won his friendship we realized that behind his mask ol quiet 
our upper New York friend hid a world of ability and a wealth 
of brains. 

Each year lound Tom toting his viola about with the orches- 
tra, and that group could boast no more staunch a follower than 
T. B. Gallant and knight-like, he was much in demand when 
post-concert dances were in swing; seldom was Tom lacking a 
fair partner, no matter what city or season of the year. 

Not everyone can sit down and work out satisfactory mathe- 
matical problems, cross-word and jig-saw puzzles, philosophical 
difficulties and such, but Tom possessed the temperament and 
the ability to do so. In fact he even made them up for himself 
on occasion and took a keen delight in unravelling them. And 
patience was but one ol Tom's many virtues.

An appreciable gift from the class of '32, Phil has made us 
grateful to them for such a prize. A friend of boarders and 
day-hoppers alike. Pinky carries with him an easy spirit of ca- 
maraderie that is withheld from none. 

In few places is he out of his element. On the football and 
baseball fields, in the classroom, in Worcester Club doings — 
Pinky is equally at ease. Perhaps his most characteristic habitat 
is the Canteen, where he mixes a mean hand of bridge with 
snacks of George Granger's concoctions. Lunch time and free 
periods inevitably saw Phil and his cohorts establishing them- 
selevs there, engaged in bridge or bull sessions, often both. 

In bridge Phil is ever sure of himself. He takes no risk with- 
out realizing the consequences, but when he does take a chance 
he does with an insouciant and devil-may-care attitude. In 
life he is less disposed to take a chance, but when he does the 
goal is worth the attempt.

We have yet to find out just what it was about that early 
morning ride over trom Clinton each day that brought Joe to 
the campus in such high spirits, but whatever it was it has 
earned our lasting thanks. Nine o'clock class, which found the 
rest of us trying to get awake, invariably saw the Squire bright- 
eyed and contagiously cheerful. We took it as such a matter 
of course towards the end of our days on the Hill that it would 
be hard to foretell the consequences had Joe appeared with a 
frown on his face. 

We knew that Joe was earnest and ambitious about his stud- 
ies, but we failed to realize how much, until this year when 
Wednesday nights regularly saw the Squire trekking from 
home and fireside to attend meetings of the Aquinas Circle. 
Interest like that will be hard to stop, so we have every confi- 
dence that Joe's cheer will win the world as it has us.

After shuttling back and forth from Fitchburg each day of 
Freshman year, George decided that he would brave the ter- 
rors of Alumni Hall and enroll as a boarder. For three years 
now he has lived with us, and we have only one fault to find: 
"Why didn't he live with us in Freshman as well?" In three 
years of companionship with George none of us has ever known 
him to lose his affability and poise, despite the most persistent 

George's easy grin is a compound of all that is needed to 
make friends, and once a friend of George's, it is hard to value 
his enough. The greatest favors were performed for his 
friends casually and gracefully; pretension is utterly foreign 
to George. 

Even the rigors of B.S. failed to take from him an iota of his 
easy good-fellowship and good-ntaure. In fact he seemed to 
thrive on lengthy assignments and log lab hours. All of which 
is quite unfathomable to his A.B. friends, who marvel at, but 
nevertheless, appreciate a lad who can be all that George is.

The arrival ol trouble and difficulty usually found us paging 
Dick, tor he could erase clouds of worry more quickly and com- 
pletely than Dorothy Dix. Just the retailing of grievances to 
our Elm Cityitc seemed to help things along, for his cherriness 
was catching. It was no wonder that we elected Dick to serve 
as class secretary in Senior year. 

As head cheer-leader Dick led our cheering section through 
the football and baseball seasons. Always begging for still 
more noise, he was determined and tireless in his efforts. Intra- 
mural swimming has no more enthusiastic disciple than Dick 
and his ability in the pool was far better than the ordinary. 

None of us was possessed of a more honest enthusiasm than 
Rich; he threw himself heart and soul into activities, carrying 
many others along with him. Vigorous and fortright, he gave 
to '33 all his spirit and energy.

It would be hard to find anywhere a more perfect gentleman 
than Normie. Never do we recall lum giving offence, neglect- 
ing any possible courtesy or tailing to oiler the hand or sin- 
cere friendship. Nor was it mere external deportment on his 
part that won us so completely; it was a dominant quality ot 
his nature. 

Though boarding with us for but a single year, the King has 
wielded a not unimpressive influence. His days in Heaven gave 
us a chance to learn that he was a conoisseur ot pipes and 
tobacco, a genial host and a willing companion on any esca- 
pade. 1 hen, too, we learned to appreciate the breadth of his 
knowledge and viewpoint, and to admire his taste and range 
in reading. 

Modern letters hnd Normie an ardent follower; few names 
in 20th century literature are unfamiliar to him. His conversa- 
tions on literature were enlightening and enjoyable, and he 
gathered about him a coterie of friends with similar interests. 
Helpful, sympathetic and cultivated he brought us an influence 
that was decidedly broadening.

Walt deserves a few medals for his tireless energy as manager 
of the Worcester Club's teams in the various Held of intramural 
sports. For four years he has held down that thankless post in 
splendid fashion, cajoling friends to help make a full team, 
begging and borrowing equipment, and always enthusiastic 
about his squads prospects, no matter what the sport. 

The bridge fiends of the Canteen had an able ally in Walt 
and every spare moment between classes found him devouring 
the pasteboards in Mr. Granger's select beanery. There must 
have been some good reason why Walt was sought as a partner, 
for he invariably was in demand when he came in to play. 

Cordial and companiable always, Walt's arrival at any gath- 
ering was a signal for jollity and good-fellowship. Pressure of 
studies or other duties never took from him his easy-going tern 
perament, and his pleasant grin.

Edward Juan Hidalgo! Long years from now the gallant 
sound or his name will evoke him from the past and we shall 
see him as he was when his vitality entered like a tonic into 
every phase of our life: Hidalgo, the persuasive and dramatic, 
opening the Holy Cross case in the debate with Harvard or 
thrilling an audience in Fenwick with his prize-winning ora- 
tion, "Disraeli and Intolerance;" Hidalgo, the consummate 
actor as Cassius or Polonius in our Shakespearean productions; 
Hidalgo, the capable editor of the Tomahawk^. Surely this man 
was well named our most brilliant and energetic. 

An immortal by right of his deeds written ineffaceably in 
the annals of Holy Cross, there are aspects of his personality 
that the collegiate record cannot imprison. His finished man- 
ner, reminiscent of old Spain in the days of her power, his 
unobtrusive urbanity, his intellect that irradiates a subject like 
a powerful light, the rugged substratum of his manhood, the 
unflinching spirit with which he met his own troubles, the 
unfeigned sympathy he extended to others in theirs, that unfor- 
gettable bearing of his that would make him distinguished, 
alone in the desert or the salon of a lord — these are the ingredi 
ents of his personal immortality in the hearts ol his friends.

Thirty-three boasts a "wise old owl" in the person of Bill, 
for we have come to realize that in him is packed much of the 
wisdom of the smallest state ol the union. Our classmate from 
Providence always has the right thing to say at the right time 
and says it always in such a way that any other words but 
his would be inadequate 

Disconsolate pre-meds found that Hill offered a pleasant anti- 
dote to the rigors of that course and frequently took advantage 
of their discovery. His room was seldom empty, for he wel- 
comed visitors and entertained them mightily with his brittle 
comments and crackling humor. More than one of his bon 
mots was repeated all about the campus soon after he uttered it. 

Possessed of a maturity and restraint that tempered his im- 
pulsiveness, Hill was the almost ideal composite of heart and 
intellect. We listened to his words and realized their value 
enough to heed them.

A considerable amount of terpsichorean ability, an amazing 
nonchalance, a captivating smile, a facility of knowing just 
what to study tor exams — add these ingredients together, blend 
them well, and you have Bill. No college dance in Worcester 
was without his presence it he could possibly manage and it 
goes without saying that he was in great demand as a dance 
partner. His good humor and irrepressible spirits were as evi- 
dent on the waxed boards as on the campus. 

Pre-exam times that found most of us tearing our hair in 
worry had no horror for Kill; he asserted that exams should 
be taken as a matter of course and practiced his doctrine. We 
envied him his constant ease of spirit and marvelled at his get- 
ting consistently good marks. 

Optimistic and radiantly cheerful as he was, he had no diffi- 
culty in making and holding friends. His carefree air helped 
lighten many an otherwise worrisome hour, and we owe Spen- 
cer a debt of thanks for lending us Bill for four years.

Voted Most Optimistic ol Senior Class. 

Our first meeting with Dick tour years ago found him rais- 
ing our spirits with a cheery "Everything'll be all right." As 
we recall it we were tremendously grateful to him for his radi- 
ant optimism. Many the time since has he uttered the same 
phrase, and each utterance has encouraged us in some difficulty 
or lifted the weight in some misfortune. Our gratitude would 
have to he o! infinite bounds to adequately appreciate and thank 
him for being such a constant pillar of sanity and wholesome 

The class did vote him as the "most optimistic," but you 
must not confuse him as a Pollyanna, Dick's optimism springs 
from an honest and forthright nature, is genuinely sincere, and 
consists not in words alone, but in deeds. The huge task of 
photography for the yearbook, and the work in charge of 
favors for the Junior Prom of last year, made plain to the eye 
what stuff this Missouri lad was made. 

Dick was a lad of abundant nervous energy too. He threw 
himself into everything he did completely. Even his friend- 
ships were intense, vital, permanent things. Few failed to 
come under the benign influence of his characteristic sanguine-

Here is the man who managed one of the greatest collegiate 
dances in Cross history, the Worcester Club's annual Easter 
formal at the Bancroft. Judging from present town talk, that 
brilliant event will be commented on for years to come; even 
Worcester's fair ones insisted that it was the "duckiest" hop they 
had attended in ages. 

Tom earned recognition as a star in intramural athletics, 
playing with the Worcester contingent for four years in every 
imaginable sport. Other interests of his were bridge, which 
he played incessantly, unwelcome vocal solos, and anything 
that promised of fun or excitement. 

The day-hop ranks boasted no more popular member than 
Tom, with his easy good-fellowship, his readiness to perform 
a service, and his fund of pirated wisecracks. His carefree ease 
has seen him through all sorts of situations and can hardly 
fail him ever.

Charlie broke into print when he stirred things up in the 
Philomath's election campaign. It was he who dared enter the 
debating hall weighed down by a huge G. O. P. elephant 
on his coat lapel. It was the very same Charlie who later made 
an assemblage of fervent Democrats rise en masse to give him a 
rousing cheer after he had made a particularly powerful Repub- 
lican campaign speech. Quite an achievement! 

Besides his debating and lecture tours, his philosophical 
studies, Charlie's pet joy was his Outing Club. We say "his" 
advisedly, for it was his enthusiasm that started and his zeal 
that kept the organization going in the face of difficulty and 
discouragement. Probably there was that spirit of the pioneer 
in Charlie, crusading for something or other that led him to 
become the official photographer of the Monster Club. Superbly 
and enthusiastically he photographed senior monsters left and 
right. What he didn't do to the possibility of recognizing the 
pictures might only be done by a California earthquake. 

Charlie's soon to be on the masthead, not at sea, but perhaps 
on the pages of the Bronx Home News. He intends to become 
acquainted with another angle ol "breaking into print."

Reputation, someone has said, is what people think of you; 
character is what you are. Both in one case must be congruous, 
for Jim is respected by those who know him for what he is — a 
young man of consistent purpose and unwavering mode of 

Most of the time Jim is the quiet, unobtrusive, scholarly Jim, 
who has a retiring demeanor, a level headedness about him. 
Sometimes though he bursts forth, the Jim of lively spirit, 
adventure, and he is ready for prank, clowning, and a whole- 
hearted good time. 

In Freshman year, Jim was the main support of the theatres, 
the cinema, legitimate, but since then has settled down to more 
important pastimes — such as handball. It is not true, however, 
that Hyp begins studying for the June orals in September — he 
never starts before March.

Hill came up Irom Waterbury to go to college, and to col- 
lege he has. Kaleidoscopic as things are in four years, studies, 
sports, friendships, socials, college oilered its best wares to Bill 
and he graciously availed himself of them all. 

In a scholastic way Bill drew out his brilliance in the years 
of philosophy. Mis mind was a receptacle of such order that 
its greatest room was tormed and open to rationalization of pre- 
cept, truth, and beings. A fund of intelligence especially 
adapted to disputation and philosophical circle, Bill stood with 
the foremost in the principal course of study in his college 
career, in the expounding of such matters to others. 

Making his the all-around education, Bill, in a debonair man- 
ner, made many friends, worked helpfully in extra-curricular 
movements, and had quite a little time left to devote as a social 
being. They say that at the end of four years in Worcester 
there are as many female hearts agog and sighing over his de- 
parture as when he leit the Brass City to begin a college educa-

Jack fulfills in our mind the adage that the Lord will provide. 
Looking back over his years on the Tomahawk^, and his Senior

our stars that this journalist from New Haven was sent us. 

With a genius for tact and a Hair for management, Jack 
helped the Tomahaw\ attain a prominent position in the world 
of college newspapers. Those of us who can recall "Monday 
going to Press Nights/' will never forget Johnny doing a thou- 
sand things at once. He could lay out a page, suggest a new 
headline, give a new angle to a story, supply a missing article, 
smoke a cigarette, and make side-splitting remarks all at the 
same time. That's quite an assignment, even for a managing

haps we may have our hope soon realized, he is undoubtedly cut 
out for journalism and an editorship.

It ever we wondered at not seeing Tom around the campus, 
wc hesitated but little knowing how busy he really was. Living 
in Worcester, he made two and perhaps three trips back and 
torth each day. And during free hours he worked in the li- 
brary, stacking, in charge of desks, departments and the like. 
In between times he studied, and he must have been talented 
for his marks were good, and went in lor intramurals, played 
bridge in the Canteen, etc., slept. Besides he found the oppor- 
tunity to attend all the affairs ot the Worcester Club, the proms, 
the meetings of the History and Scientific Societies, and the 
many lectures and musicales on the Hill. 

There was quite a bit ot bad luck hounding Tom during his 
four years of college, so much at times that it left many of us 
wondering at the braveness and character of a man who could 
take the worst courageously and often with a smile. Of what- 
ever quality of manhood such is compounded, we admired it 
much in you, Tom!

Bill is one of those chaps lor whose claim we envy the staid 
old Heart of the Commonwealth. His popularity with his fel- 
low Worcesterites is equalled only by the esteem in which we 
ot the hinterland hold him. It's hard to define charm, but what- 
ever it is, Bill possesses it in a high degree. In him, it's more 
than an attractive personality and a likeable demeanor; it's 
something more basic that draws all of us to him. 

Never excited, never unduly roused. Bill is really a most de- 
termined lad. Sincerity of purpose is in his every word and ges- 
ture, plus a most engaging frankness that brooks no respect of 
false values. Early in our college careers we found these out 
and since then have continued to regard Bill as a firm friend 
in all circumstances. 

One of the leaders of the Canteen crew. Bill wields a magic 
power that his followers are at a loss to understand but love 
nevertheless. It's typical of Bill that he does things; he doesn't 
waste his time talking about them.

Clad in velvet and lace, Tom would make a romantically 
appealing Spanish nobleman of the silver screen, but the fact 
that he happens to be a lively young American does not make 
him any the less gallant. The Spanish exterior of Ronny, Peter 
de Courcy and Don Carlos (all meaning Tom) covers a glow- 
ing Irish heart, full of tempestuous enthusiasm and vital energy. 

His daring as an intramural athlete, scorning protective 
devices, has aided him to considerable success in hockey, base- 
ball and basketball. It was typical of Tom that he would risk 
all on one blazing attempt, but it was not all pure recklessness, 
as his teammates can testify. 

Junior year saw Tom come into his own as an authority on 
what to know for Mr. Drumm's English Lit exams; his own 
marks gave proof of his ability as a student of letters. The 
same year saw Tom form the Unholy Three, that trio of globe 
trotters and excitement seekers. Bringing a new zest into 
any activity, Tom's participation was a certain indication of 
the success of any undertaking.

A snap judgment might characterize Joe as stolid, but real 
knowledge of the man would force a characterization of him as 
truly philosophical. One of our outstanding scientists, Joe sub- 
jects everything to the close scrutiny of a brilliantly analytic 
mind before giving it his approval. He was an ideal friend in 
times of stress; with his advice the way was made clear and 
direct and with his help the accomplishment was half-com- 

Room-gatherings found Joe quiet most of the time, but now 
and then injecting a brief phrase that summed the situation 
tersely. It was hard to value his presence justly; it was only 
after he left that we knew how he had guided the conversation, 
and with him gone there was an obvious void. 

It was useless to attempt to add anything to what Joe said; his 
aphorisms were succinctly complete and worthy of a Heine. 
Characteristically modest about his brilliant record in the Col- 
lege's most arduous course, Joe gave to Thirty-three a personal- 
ity that scorned pretense and sophistry, offering sincerity and 
simplicity instead.

Never do we recall him losing any of his priceless enthusiasm;

despite the criticism and year-long heckling of the whole of

Fullbacks, in the popular mind, are slow-footed, plugging, 
stolid individuals who keep pushing away at the opposing line 
all atternoon. We can't speak lor the others of the species, but 
we insist that Don is the antithesis of all these notions. Fast, 
brilliant, shitty-footed and heady, he hurtled and squirmed his 
way through enemy elevens in breath-taking fashion for three 
full seasons as a varsity man. 

There is no more winning personality on the campus than 
that of this soft-voiced, easy-mannered Baltimorean. Even the 
victims of his insatiable desire for practical jokes had to admit 
that the tokes were brilliantly executed and genuinely funny. 

Always ready to lend his not unpleasing voice to any vocal 
outburst, Don was a member of many an impromptu campus 
quartet. It is remarkable how one chap can be as entertaining, 
gallant and genuinely friendly as Don has been.

(Jiving a considerable amount of thought to every project, 
Jim had the ability of communicating his air of concentration. 
The difficulties he proposed were never without substantial 
foundation, and more than one of them forced profs to reflect 
considerably before answering. Not that Jim is purely a de-

in the classroom has shown the merit of his system beyond dis- 

After study hour there was no merrier companion than this

ber of the refectory staff, Jim was as good-natured there as else- 
where, which, after all, is the real test of manhood.

but they fall flat before his rugged sincerity of purpose.

alties and doubled them at Holy Cross. In philosophy he had 
few peers, yet he was not above leading some of his benighted 
friends through the Fundamental Forest and the Advanced 
Abyss. Nor did he have to resort to wild argument and heated 
words to penetrate those woolly scalps. Joe saved his oratory 
to defend Tammany, Brooklyn, the Bronx, his earlier education, 
his insatiable hunger and his many friends. Outside activities 
never became a passion for him — he had sense enough to treat 
all of them as occasional indulgences. The Outing Club at- 
tracted him occasionally, but never on its more foot-wearying 
undertakings. The History Academy would welcome him, 
then miss his presence. And this moderation in all things is 
pre-eminently characteristic. 

When Second Loyola would meet in its many loquacious ses- 
sions, it would often attempt to make Joe deny that he could 
run beneath chairs and desks. His easy manner invited this 
kidding, while his constant good nature, ready sympathy and 
pleasant company made his presence essential to every gather- 
ing. His are the qualities of purposeful endeavor and strong 
friendship — and these command respect.

The roar ot a car racing up Linden Lane announced Bob's 
arrival in our midst four years ago, and he has raced his way 
through lour years of gaining friendships, alarming pedestrians 
and week-ending in Hartford. We needed no clearer idea of 
Sir Malcolm Campbell than a picture of Bob's brakeless road- 
ster hurtling along the highway. 

Once out ot the driver's seat. Bob is no longer a madman, 
but a sane, likeable human being. He had no superior in 
catch-as-catch-can argument, as many of us learned to our sor- 
row in those lengthy bull-sessions of Alumni, Beaven and Loy- 
ola. Wise listeners never took sides till they found which one 
Bob would espouse; then they Rocked to his banner, confident 
that verbal defeat was almost impossible. 

Without any conscious effort on his part Bob has drawn to 
him scores of friends, and once in Bob's spell there was no 
thought ot leaving this lanky, philosophical Hartfordite.

Four years ago the thriving metropolis of Elmhurst, N. Y. 
was quite unknown to all of us; now, thanks to the salesman- 
ship of the above pictured young man we can talk of its charm 
with the easy familiarity of a native. Apparently Elmhurst is 
more than a town to its inhabitants; judging from Tom, it 
is almost a religion. But, to hear his glowing descriptions, it 
must he well-worth seeing. 

Parting sorrowfully from his beloved haunts, Tom soon be- 
came prominent in our midst. Intramural athletics, debating 
and the St. John Berchmans Society all drew his attention and 
subsequently his efforts. Characteristically he has been faithful 
to them all. As a member of the Tomahawk^ stalT, he distin- 
guished himself as a faithful and untiring worker. Steady and 
reliable he gave commensurate time to his studies and was one 
of the few not worried by the shadow of approaching exams. 

Tom's domain on Second Loyola was a popular rendezvous 
for those interested in chatter and wrestling, both of which 
indoor sports flourished under his benign influence. More than 
one neighbor's sound slumber was rudely interrupted by the 
thud of falling bodies from Tom's room. That their com- 
plaints took no more drastic form than muttered grumblings is 
somewise quite a tribute to the serious-minded youth from

Quick-witted and talented in the give-and-take that marked 
bull-sessions, the "Boss" made himself known as a capable 
patron of debate on a variety of topics. He even offered his 
room for this purpose although his patient roommate's tenden- 
cies were far less argumentative. The Boss and "Geetz" were 
equals in size but opposites in tastes. 

After an intermittent three years of apprenticeship spent in 
retrieving baseballs from the murky Blackstone and the pockets 
of the knot-hole gang, Tom supplanted the famous three-man 
club of ex-baseball managers and became guardian of the var- 
sity team. To say that he filled the duties of this important 
post ably is superfluous, for Tom has the happy faculty of 
making all his activities brilliantly successful. 

In the field of studies few possessed greater diligence or 
achieved greater reward for efforts well spent; in the field of 
friendships none was more sympathetic or more understanding 
than this earnest student, active Crusader and staunch com-

It is surely a mark ol rare esteem to be entrusted with respon- 
sibility by ones fellows, especially in financial matters. Bill's 
election as treasurer ol the Worcester Club in his senior year 
speaks volumes in his favor. With Bill as watch-dog, the 
treasury dollars, usually so elusive and unstable in action, have 
behaved themselves in so exemplary a fashion that Bill has 
long since discarded his bottle ol red ink, the time-honored em- 
blem of his office. 

When not busily engaged in the realms of high finance. Bill 
usually spent his time evading the door-man at Tech dances. 
Genial Bill is now known unofficially as the good-will ambas 
sador between our two local institutions, having easily out- 
distanced all other claimants for this honor. It is a mystery to 
all of us how Bill found time to hit the books in the midst of 
his other activities, but figures do not lie, especially when in- 
scribed upon the Dean's quarterly reports. Honor grades are 
common occurrences in Bill's young life, and he accepts them 
with the quiet modesty which denotes the true scholar.

Vitally and energetically alive, Gus has spent every minute of 
four years doing something. He signalled his arrival on Mt. 
St. James by reporting for the band and becoming a valuable 
member of that group. It did not take him long thereafter to 
make his mark as an intramural athlete, an ambitious student 
and a genuine good fellow. 

The class showed its respect for Gus' ability by naming him 
chairman of the Senior Ball, that gala event which climaxes 
four years at the Cross. We who know Gus have no doubt but 
that the formal will be the finest possible and we look forward 
to it in anticipation. 

For four years Gus has been everyone's friend. He has never 
been too pre-occupied to drop a greeting or too busy to aid an 
acquaintance. In that lies the secret of his deserved popularity.

Practically every means of transportation except the kiddie 
ear has been used by Marty in his daily journeys from Brook- 
field. Railroad, bus, motorcycle, hitch-hiking — all these he em- 
ployed during our first three years. Dissatisfied still, he 
chugged his way here every day this year in an ancient vehicle 
ol uncertain vintage. This decrepit collection of spare parts 
pants, sputters and groans, but it gets here invariably, to Marty's 
supreme joy. 

Marty transferred his baseball talents from Brookeld Com- 
mon to Fitton Field in Junior year and survived all Jack Barry's 
cuts to win a uniform as regular. His work with the diamond 
artists was faithful and steady. 

One does not look for the sensational in Marty, but seeks and 
finds a steady dependability that enables him to reach his chosen 
goal surely and consistently. His progress in life can be no 
surer and certain than his successful advancement here in Col-

Ray came to Pleasant Springs Hill from Xavier High where 
he had won for himself the name "Fine AU-Around Scholar." 
Certainly in the passing of the four years his title has more than 
been justified. We recall with a certain pride the occasion on 
which Ray first gained collegiate prominence, the night of the 
Freshman Banquet, when as toastmaster presiding he displayed 
such brilliance, cleverness and scintilating humor as has rarely 
been witnessed. 

From that night on. Ray's figure as a campus luminary shone 
with the brightest. His special interest in forensic activity led 
him to be chosen in Sophomore year as a member of the var- 
sity debating team. Three whole years of splendid work in 
this field have left hardly a peer. Ray took interest in many 
things alike. He became a charter member of the History So- 
ciety, expended much time and ability in the Greek Academy. 
wrote remarkably well through four years on the Tomahawk^, 
had outstanding success in the Classics and Philosophy, and 
with a square saneness, managed a broad, well-rounded educa- 

While many of us talked, defined, and quoted friendship, Ray 
forgot words, and let himself and actions speak.

Thesis — J. Richard Lenehan is a likeable fellow possessed of a 
quick-trigger smile, a ready wit, a keen sense of humor and 
a flair for biology. 

1. J. R. Lenehan (before we prove the thesis) — the lad known 

as Dick. 

2. Likeable — An entity is likeable when it works immediately 

and directly on an appetitive faculty so that we are con- 
sciously attracted to it. 

3. Fellow — chap, guy, egg, etc. 

4. Quick-trigger smile — a pleasing, contagious expression, char- 
acterized by a lateral upward extension of the lips; displayed 

on the slightest provocation. 

5. Ready wit — as opposed to slowness or dullness of wit. 

6. Keen sense of humor — an alert appreciation of the subtleties 

of humor. 

7. Flair for biology — an incessant, aching, throbbing love for the 

science of living organisms as well as a peculiar ability for 
the subject. 
Proof — The thesis is self-evident, as anyone knowing Dick 
will readily admit.

Here is the handsome signor trom Shrewsbury Street who 
smiled his pleasant way into our hearts from the very first and 
whose hair-cutting forays on top Loyola made Favulli's room 
a center of interest. If all the money that was owed Al at 
various times were added together it would make a lot of ton- 
nage. However, this curly-headed Worcesterite was too good 
natured to let mere money interfere with his art. 

That Al's merit was recognized despite his modesty was seen 
when he was one of those named to the Purple Key this year. 
His conscientious and effective work more than justified his 
selection for Al does nothing without doing it well. Everyone 
on the campus knows him by name for it is almost impossible 
to resist friendship with this sunny smiling lad.

It is said of (!. B. S. that, were he to enter a hall and find two 
hundred persons on one side ot an argument and only twenty- 
five on the other, he would unquestionably join the minority. 
Dom, too, is like that; his sympathy is always with the under- 
dog and his mind refuses to accept any doctrine just because 
others do. His objections to philosophical theses would fill vol- 
umes, but once convinced of a point he held to it tenaciously. 

Apart from the pursuit of knowledge D. }. was the most en- 
tertaining company imaginable. He was an uncanny mimic, 
an able story-teller and a devastating purveyor of ironic wit. 
One entered his room with an expectant air; it was impossible 
to predict what was going on, so varied were the moods of the 
Thompsonville Terror. The program varied from arguments 
about scholastic philosophy to impromptu three-ring circuses 
with Dom as ringmaster. Always, though, you could be cer- 
tain of good times and good fun with D. J.

Not satisfied with a room that was the center of a corridor's 
wrestling activity Boh decided he would have a haven of physi- 
cal culture as well. With that in mind he instituted early 
morning setting-up exercises, purchased a bar-bell, juggled 
weights on the slightest provocation and did everything possible 
to annoy his neighbors. 

Intramural athletics of every sort had Bob as a participant, 
but football was his love and he excelled in the gridiron sport. 
He played with the freshman team and was on the varsity

Sheer determination and tireless labor have characterized 
Frank for four years, and, added to a native ability, have made 
him one of the outstanding men in the class. He has excelled 
in every subject in the curriculum, he has been active in extra- 
curricular societies, and he has won himself a host of friends. 

His professional understanding of junior philosophy earned 
him the coveted Philosophy Medal last June. Both his ability 
as a psychologist and his qualities as a leader were recognized 
when he was elected to the presidency of the Aquinas Circle 
this year. 

Attention to even the tiniest of details has marked Frank in 
his days at the Cross; his notes fulfill a professor's dream, 
neatly typed and absolutely complete. That he has seen his 
goal and marched toward it steadily cannot help but reflect on 
him the highest credit.

It was only natural that the Silver City should send Hoi) 
Cross a silver lining in the person of Bill. Seventy-five inches 
of good nature, he fairly radiates friendliness and good-fellow- 
ship and brings with him into any gathering an air of easy 
familiarity that breaks down any barriers of constraint. 

Bill achieved fame in his days on Third Fenwick by being 
the only member of our class who failed to receive a demerit. 
By the beginning of Sophomore year there were dire plans 
afoot to lock him in his room, to feed him a sleeping powder 
or use even more drastic means, but Bill solved the problem 
himself by finally missing Mass one autumn morning. 

The pre-med ranks have had no more faithful member than 
Bill; he even devoted Saturdays and Sundays to his experiments. 
Friendship with Bill is a thing to treasure, for the lanky Meri- 
denite can be relied upon to help in any circumstance.

Here we have the second member of that inseparable trio of 
Kane, Lynch and Sheehan, comrades by day and by night 
And while on the Hill, George has clearly evinced those quali- 
ties which make for true popularity. His is the cheerful dis- 
position which readily makes Iriends; his is the sincerity and 
loyalty which keeps them. It is because of these sterling char 
acteristics that acquaintance with George quickly ripens 
into friendship and esteem. And that is the reason why, after 
four years of comradeship, he is one ol the most popular of our 
fellow students. 

In addition to his other tasks, George found time to act as an 
efficient cog in the city public library system. In fact, he is one 
of the chief reasons why bigger and better branch libraries are 
built. With his characteristic energy and enterprise, George 
will soon find the pearl in the proverbial oyster. And as a stu- 
dent, as a real gentleman, as an apostle of true good-fellowship, 
Holy Cross regretfully parts with him.

Gobby Boy-Dastard football games lost half their zest when 
Lou withdrew from battle, due to a minor disaster, a wrenched 
knee caused by a tuft of grass. But while interest waned, Lou 
found a better pastime taking Outing Club trips, extended 
jaunts on snow trains and skiing down into flumes. 

At the same time this enthusiastic outdoorer found plenty to 
do indoors. Lou retained the ideal of a sound mind and a 
sound body ever. His efforts on the Tomahaw\ were splendid 
ones, and his logical debates in the Philomath were as good. Of 
all the honor students in the class, Lou was one to maintain a 
uniformly high scholastic standing throughout his course. 

On and about corridor Lou was a good listener, but a better 
narrator. His summer vacations seemed to have been crowded 
with more experiences than were chronologically possible, but 
there was an authentic ring to all of them. Personally Lou 
was serious, unobtrusive, the essence of discretion, with a gift 
for caustic comment and sardonic humor. Now and then he- 
took perverse delight in the unusual though unjustifiable side 
of any discussion.

Down from Greenfield four years ago came the gallant Bill, 
carrying with him a set of golf clubs, a catching grin and an 
ability for friendship. All three have remained with him dur- 
ing his stay at the Cross; golf has claimed him each spring and 
autumn, while the smile and the ability to win friends have 
been with him every season of the year. 

Bill came into his own when the Rifle Club was organized, 
and he was elected vice-president of the infant organization. 
Not only did he help the club in its regular activities, but he 
was outstanding in the various matches that were contested 
with other colleges. 

First Loyola had no more popular rendezvous than Red's 
room. Any visitors were certain of a hearty welcome and a 
good time with Bill, which accounted for inevitable gatherings

Having a certain pride about such tilings, Aussie early and 
firmly insisted that his name was pronounced May-ley hack in 
the coal regions, and by a process of logic, learned when one is a 
Junior, should he pronounced the same way in the heart or 
New England. The fact that we have learned to pronounce it 
correctly, with the exception of a professor or two, is ample 
credit to this easy going and light hearted young man from 

One of the great periodic events of our tenure on Pakachoag 
was the arrival of Austy's monthly check, an event which 
brought about all sorts of complications. The processes by 
which Aussie managed to strike an even balance would amaze 
an Einstein — perhaps he could understand it. 

In more sober terms, however, Aussie, prescinded from his 
engaging wit and florid enthusiasms, was serious and deliberate; 
in less sober ones, the "real McCoy."

Larry is a member of that now famous Foreign Legion, that

should he general of that army, tor he has never, in four years, 
roomed in the same building as the rest of us. The misfortune 
was ours, not his, for we know we have missed much that 
rooming with him would have given us. Larry was no stranger, 
by any means; he lent himself to all the class activities, he 
dropped in frequently for visits, and we returned them tenfold. 

Perhaps his rooming away from us gave him a clearer slant 
on the class, for his advice was invariably sound and sober, his 
criticisms were undeniably fair and constructive, and his view-

a faithful student, Larry did not fail to help us with his knowl-

It is rather difficult to place the blame tor any mischief on one 
whose eyes meet yours in a blandly innocent stare, and whose 
whole demeanor bespeaks the cherub. Hence the reason lor 
Joe invariably escaping blame and censure for any misdeeds 
over a four-year period. More than a few of us have envied 
Joe this ability as we watched his innocent look win him com 
plcte freedom from suspicion. 

Joe's dry laughing gas has sent more than one class into panic 
and the shakes to the discomfiture of profs who naturally could 
not even begin to suspect the wide-eyed youth who looked at 
them with such seriousness. 

Humor has characterized foe all during his college career. It 
we were not listening to his frequent wisecracks on all sorts ot 
subjects we were hugely enjoying his popular column in the 
Tomahaw\. One who sees the humor ol a situation as easily 
as does Joe cannot help but thoroughly enjoy life, and those 
who smile their way through it with him cannot help but come 
under his cheery influence.

Here, without a doubt, is one of '33's most popular members. 
"Hobby," with his Irish geniality, his unfailing generosity, his 
sturdy loyalty, has won for himself hosts of friends. Unspoiled 
and unaffected, Hob has often made us admire his utter lack 
of artificiality, his complete air of naturalness. 

He has two pet loves, Ireland and the Democratic party. Un- 
lucky indeed is the person who dares utter word against either 
of these in the presence of the youth from Holyoke. All the 
fire of a burning Irish eloquence will turn against him; all the 
enthusiasm of a great patriot and party man will attack him, 
until the unfortunate will wonder why he brought up the mat- 
ter in the first place. 

Such is "Hobby." We admire him for his sincerity and his 
simplicity; we value his friendship; we thank him for all that 
he has done for the class, the school, and for this year's Patcher.

If you seek, a man of rash impulse, don't pause at "Geetz," 
lor his nature is directly contradictory to your requirements. 
But if you want someone who is deliberate, mature and 
thoughtful, then you need look no farther. Even in those dis- 
tant Third Fenwick days, he stood out for his qualities of 
steadiness and restraint. 

A keen student of literature, "Geetz" was in his element in 
the elective English courses. His reading covered many fields 
in many aspects and he gained tremendously from it. As a 
classmate, he possessed a quiet sincerity that marked all deal 
ings; it would he difficult to find a truer gentleman. 

His chief activity was largely a literary one and concerned it- 
self with the deeper, more serious English classics. Quiet and 
peace were the backgrounds in his search for what was best in 
reading and writing. Dividing his affection for his more con-

Fresh from a conquest of Rhode Island's high school athletes, 
Don came to the Cross to dispel completely and forever the old 
belief that a truly great catcher must be of mountainous size. 
College baseball knew few men faster on the bases than Don, 
while behind the plate and at the bat he ranked with the best. 
Small but wiry, Don brought to the Barrymen a native sprint- 
ing ability that had been polished oft by Track Coach Bart Sul- 

Owning an attractive personality, Don found no difficulty in 
winning a high degree of popularity on and off the campus. He 
did not devote himself exclusively to athletics but managed to 
find time for activities with the Scientific Society, the Sodality, 
the Rhode Island Club and the Aquinas Circle. In these fields 
just as in baseball, there was none more genuinely enthusiastic 
than Don; he brought to them all an invigorating zest.

Howie has spent most of his stray moments analyzing whatever 
hair tonic, mouth wash or tooth-paste he happened to have 
handy. His experiments were always entertaining, if not in- 
lormative, tor Howie is a master showman and invests each 
step of the procedure with a compelling air of mystery. 

Athletically, Howie proved that smallness of stature need not 
necessarily he a handicap. On the basketball court he was fast, 
shifty, elusive and a sure shot. His haskets had the habit of 
coming just the right moment, and more than once the pride 
of Weehawken brought a last-inning victory to the class team. 

Radio fans liked to gather in Howie's room, for his taste in 
regard to air performers was excellent and his knowledge of 
their personalities illuminating. To everything he did Howie 
brought a fast-working brain, a quick wit and a brimming

A disbeliever in what he termed "the sillier conventions," 
Dan thought nothing of starting oft lor class in slippers and 
smoking jacket. Nor does that mean that he held class lightly; 
on the other hand, there were few more industrious and ener- 
getic than Dan, but he did believe in personal comfort. The 
pre-med course claimed him and he joined that group of heavy- 
scheduled, hard-studying men of the laboratory. 

Illness forced Dan's absence from college for several weeks 
this winter but, nothing daunted, he made up his work in jig 
time and proceeded to go on with the class. To anyone else 
that would have been a major achievement, to Dan it was the 
most ordinary of accomplishments. 

Willing to give and accept advice in the right spirit, Dan 
was high in the councils of 33. His quiet conviction was per- 
suasive in itself and impossible to combat.

Words of praise can add little to the accomplishments of a 
youth to whom his classmates entrusted the arduous duties of 
class president. As our leader during Junior and Senior years, 
George has been outstanding and has justified all the confidence 
that 35 placed in him. 

Cheery, smiling, Cieorge invariably brightened any gathering 
with his wit. He was more than a "good fellow;" he could he 
serious, thoughtful, duly grave when the occasion demanded. 
The rights ot the class never suffered if George could help it; 
he worked hard and earnestly in our behalf. Appreciation can 
pay him little for all that he has done. 

Showing himself a real leader, George's name will go down 
in Holy Cross annals as the truly great head of a great class. 
He leaves us with our friendship and gratitude. We have had 
and will continue to have every confidence in George. We 
know it has been justly placed.

Publication of the very first honor list in Freshman year dis- 
closed that Marty was ranking with the leaders in class. Some 
of us did not know him well then but since that time we have 
had no stauncher advocate or firmer friend. Despite the handi- 
cap of trekking from and to Leominster every day, Marty has 
been extremely active. Intramural baseball had no finer out- 
fielder, while Marty yet had time to interest himself in the 
doings of the Aquinas Circle, the Outing Club, the Historical 
Society and the Scientific Society. 

Those third period bull-essions of Top Loyola almost daily 
attracted Marty, and others listened respecttully when Marty 
held the floor. Solid and thoughtful, he was worth listening to 
when he had something to say. Marty needs no press agent; 
his record speaks for itsell without any elaboration.

The Holyoke crew is incomplete without Ed; they would 
think of planning no activity without consulting their "Dan," 
as they have christened him for some unknown reason. Rip 
brought into that group as to everything he entered an inim- 
itable Irish initiative that scoffed at obstacles and almost invari- 
ably reached its end. 

Every field of intramural athletics attracted Ed. He shone 
in baseball as a first-sacker, in football as a pass receiver, in bas- 
ketball as a shifty forward. He was one of the first to support 
the Riding Club and served as its vice-president this year. 

Ed's soft, persuasive voice made it decidedly easy for him 
to express his opinions; every word was utterly convincing. In 
no company could you ask for a better companion than this 
winning Celt; his personality conquered any barriers of un-

Here, dear reader, is our year-book's capable and energetic- 
Business Manager. Here, before your eyes, is the author or 
"Purple Pennings,'' that thought inspiring column in our Col- 
lege weekly. Here, too, is the creator of those clever and bril- 
liant essays in the Purple. You must have guessed it: J. Frank 
Morris, writer, debater, business man, sportsman, and famed 
hitch-hiker, all rolled and molded into one pleasant, jolly, good 

Frank is a sports' lover supreme. He wrote sports, played 
sports, read sports and watched. Leader of many floor teams, 
he gave the bum's rush to care, wear and tear, and made some 
messy looking shins in the undertaking. 

Space on this page is really too small to record a discussion 
of all of his activities, Patcher, Purple, Tomahaw\, Philomath, 
History Society, etc., but it must be stated in plain, bold print 
that Frank was really a charter member of that most exclusive 
club known as the Golden Screw. He became entitled to en- 
rollment on completion of his two years' training along the 
banks and in the depths of our Thames. 

Since his dormitory days of 1929-30 season, through the long 
(Frank says overlong) stay in Alumni and the completion of 
his sojourn on Second Loyola, he has established a name that 
connotes honor and friendship. The vears can never give it 
any other!

For the best and soundest of reasons Moynie has been given 
the appellation ot "Cozy." No difficulty comes without him 
having a solution; no problem proves too abstruse for his fast- 
working brain; no situation finds him unprepared. Frank 
never decides on a course of action without providing several 
alternatives, and without making provision for possible even 

Casual acquainatnees would classify "Cozy" as quiet, but no 
one who has lived with him for four years would even think 
of using that adjective. When there was excitement on the 
corridor, Frank was either at the bottom of it or at least a co- 
conspirator. Coing at his best he offered in one person the 
antics of the Marx Brothers, Stoopnagle and Budd, and Ed 
Wynn, with a dash of Guncotton Gus thrown in for good meas- 

His ability to study without seeming to and his aptitude for 
concentration kept him in the forward ranks as a student. 
There was no better tonic for dull moments than Frank, nor a 
disease more infectious than his happy personality.

One of the happiest couples in the class was Jack and Col. 
Early in the years at Holy Cross, through admiraiton and af- 
fection, an affinity grew that has mellowed into a lasting 
friendship. We all can easily understand why Jack was like- 
able, he possessed the commonsense virtues of wholesomeness, 
generosity, optimism, and substantiability. Then too. a hand- 
some poise, good looks, curly hair, and a decidedly infectious 
grin, were wont always to increase bit by bit your liking for 

jack used to hike after class. The country, the woods, scout- 
ing river bends and streams, picking apples in the fall, were his 
haunts. Many the day too he walked townwards, and the 
stores and people along the way became accustomed to hearing 
the sprightly step and to seeing the "all's well" smile. It's cer- 
tain they will not forget it any sooner than we. 

Of course Jack insisted on some rigid study hours in his 
room, but oftener than not, a happy congregation that grew 
boisterously happier as wit followed wit would invest itself 
within. Time flew, care too, Jack had a kind and pleasant 
manner of making both disappear.

Dan has led a busy lite at the Cross, and although his length 
ot stay has only been three years in our midsts, attending Bos- 
ton College in Freshman, he has more than made up this loss 
by increased activity. 

His ability was spread over many fields. Taking part in 
prom committees, the Economics Club as an officer, prominent 
on the Board ol Editors of the Patcher, Journal Salesman, Dan 
showed consumate skill in handling all with due efficiency. Not 
daunted in intramurals, a vibrant cheer-leader, a kind host, he 
made his mark a lasting one in the minds of all. 

In curriculum Dan did more than well. There was some- 
thing peculiar and uncanny about his being able to study deep 
into the hours ol the night, becoming wider awake as darkness 
darkened and then passed. Because he was so serious and 
steady, sure and intent, we are certain that his efforts have 
rewarded him. Dan needs but little yet, perhaps time will 
give him this.

Here is the Sage of Westfield, whose witty aphorisms helped 
pass many an otherwise dull hour and whose constant good- 
nature belies a seriousness of expression. That profundity of 
countenance was a great help to F. X. in having his funny 
stories gain their full effect; it enabled him to keep a straight 
face at the very heights of his incredible yarns. Unsuspecting 
victims, gazing at his rerious face, invariably took his Mun- 
chausen adventures as gospel truth. 

In class, Frank yielded to none. He proved his ability with 
Horace in Freshman year and he is still in the forefront as he 
revels in I. Q.'s and such this year. Always willing to lend 
any possible co-operation, even at the cost of time and energy, 
Murph was a fine man to have as a friend and all of us were 
discerning enough to take advantage of that fortunate fact. 
Loyal and well-disposed he could be depended on whatever 
the circumstances.

The lad from Whitman early impressed us as one who would 
be a loyal and steadfast friend, and Joe, in his quiet way, has 
made us admire those qualities that make him the level-headed 
youth that he is. Industrious, thoughtful and serious, his influ- 
ence has been ever helpful, and his opinions have always been 
truly wise. 

Joe had a room in Alumni, in Sophomore year, that was so 
strategically located for various forms of carefully-planned, 
practical jokes that it was almost impossible to find out just 
who lived in those famous quarters so numerous were the 
guests. But Joe went through it smilingly, even helping a bit 
himself now and then, and unfortunate indeed was the one who 
chanced to pass into Alumni when a band of reckless sopho 
mores had nothing to do and Joe's room to do it in. 

It is not easy to say good-bye to one such a friend as Joe, but 
he can rest assured that he carries with him the good wishes of 
all who knew him as he is, a real and steadfast friend.

A poised, suave young man who awed us with his easy 
assurance strolled across the campus in the fall of '29 and Tom 
Murphy had joined our ranks. That awe of the early days 
changed to a real liking and appreciation when we came to 
know Tom better as the days went by, and the years since then 
have seen our friendship for him ripen. 

A good mixer and at home in any company Tom scorned 
factions and was equally friendly to all. One of the most popu- 
lar of the day students he was an active force in several under- 
takings, and none who came in contact with him could help 
but like him for his affable friendliness. 

Tom was at his best in the social world of Worcester, and 
no collegiate affair of any importance could hope for any sort 
of completeness without his presence. Polished and adaptable, 
he was equally at home at Marshall's and the Bancroft, than 
which it is impossible to say more. The Worcester Club won 
his enthusiastic support, and his committee work was always 
well and ably done. The polished assurance that has stood 
him in such good stead on the Hill cannot help but smooth his 
way wherever he goes.

Speed is characteristic ot George Murray; being restless and 
quick by his very nature, he no sooner thinks of a thing than 
he starts to work on it. And yet his impulsiveness has never 
proved detrimental for (leorge has achieved splendid iesults 
in everything he has undertaken. 

It labor in studies points to the road leading to success then 
this "red head" from staid old Brighton is foreordained thereto. 
Abounding with nervous energy, a "go-getter," a veritable spark 
of dynamite, there is no resisting his progress. It is character- 
istic of him that when appointed to the decoration committee 
ot the Boston Club dance, George immediately set about bor- 
rowing a hammer and tacks. 

Although sincere and resolute in preparing his classics, a 
spirit of levity and frivolity was never absent. Naturally quick 
at repartee and well equipped with original puns, his retorts 
and sallies were always enjoyed by the most serious and exact-

Football crowds are notorious for watching only the ball 
carrier and when the figure of Tim Murray began to streak, 
across the stripes very regularly last fall, fans kept asking 
"Where's he been till now?" We who had known him as a 
great blocking back for two years could only say that at last 
Tim had come into his own and that he well-deserved the plau- 
dits that were being heaped on him. 

Recognizing his worth early, we elected him to the post of 
class treasurer and have kept him there through four years of 
growing admiration for his sturdy sincerity and rugged sim- 
plicity. Even the added hours of the pre-med course in Senior 
year kept Tim from throwing himself heart and soul not only 
into athletics but other campus activities as well. 

The Cross may see other surging halfbacks battle their way 
for precious yards; there may be other outfielders on the Hill 
in days to come whose marvelous fielding and thunderous bat- 
ting thrill admiring crowds. But we feel sure that there'll 
never be another man like the Marty we admire as an athlete 
but love as a friend.

any circumstances. It was no easy task for Mac to make the 
many necessary trips up Irom the city hut he made them smil- 
ingly and willingly. 

Mac spent so much time on the campus that he almost lived 
among us. Needless to say, he was always welcome in any 
room he had a fancy to visit, lor his bright personality brought 
a touch ot warmth with it. Blending good nature with a well- 
defined sense of responsibility, he possessed a poise that was

Wherever there was Worcester Club activity during the past 
four years you could rest assured that Maxie was highly in- 
volved. Whether it was intramural athletics, a club dance or 
some impromptu gathering, Maxie was invariably there in per- 
son and amazingly active. It was exciting to watch energy 
fairly exude from him as he rushed ahead into making plans, 
playing football or baseball or even as he dominated a conver- 
sation. He revelled in something to do and his boundless 
spirit carried others along with him. 

He had his more relaxed moments, too, and they were as 
highly characteristic of the man. Calmly, logically and force- 
fully, Jack would expound his personal views in a manner that 
was compelling and convincing. Those were the moments 
when we liked to listen to him, when his quiet argument 
would clear up a point beyond a doubt.

Few fellows in the class have been as energetically active as 
Jack, whose activities ranged from football to debating but 
whose efforts never slackened despite difficulties of the moment. 
Jack made his mark as an outstanding man in Freshman year, 
when he played frosh football and basketball, achieved success 
in debating and won his place with the honor men in scholas- 
tic ranking. 

Philomath had many able speakers this past year but Jack 
could stand comparison with any. His persuasive delivery, his 
fine ennunciaiton and his dramatic force all aided him in prize 
debating and as a member of the Philomath's lecture team 
which held debates in many eastern cities. 

Serious in time of study, affable in other moments, Jack 
had the happy knack of adjusting himself thoroughly to cir- 
cumstances. He was equally at home on the lecture platform 
and in an informal discussion. In both places he displayed that 
open frankness and genuine simplicity that have made us value 
him as a friend.

Music is the essence of Dick; it is in the delicate fancy of hi., 
poetry, the fluidity of his prose and the rhythm of his conver- 
sation. Add to these the fact that music in the concrete is his 
hobby, he being a valued member of the Philharmonic Orches- 
tra, and it can be readily seen that the thesis is proven. 

A gentleman of many sides, Dick's prowess has continued to 
amaze us. He is a poet, an essayist, a debater and a musician 
and far abo\e the average in all roles. His gracefully expressed 
verse in the Purple won high critical praise; his essays were 
thoughtful and scholarly. As a debater he was forceful and 
logical, and woe to the opponent who made a misstatement 
when Dick was on the platform. He reached his oratorical peak 
this year as a member of the varsity team, and the cumulative 
force of his solid arguments, almost unanswerable at times, 
helped the team to more than one win in forensic competition. 

As a conversationalist Dick was heeded and respected. What 
he said was not only interesting but true. Hasty conclusions 
were never his; his method was slower and more painstaking 
but invariably sure. A task entrusted to him is one that will be 
done well; Dick would ask no more.

Our two Tom McCarthys gave us a lot oi trouble the first 
year we knew them as we just couldn't tell them apart. Both 
were faithful performers in the intramural circuit, and it was 
only when we realized Tom J. played with the Worcesterites 
that the grinning lad hailed from the Heart of the Common- 
wealth. It was easy to pick up friendship with Tom; easy- 
going, good natured and thoroughly likeable he made us feel 
thoroughly at home. 

Tom won his big fame on the night of our Senior Reception 
to the freshmen when he pranced all over O'Kane's stage as 
Budd to McClure's Col. Stoopnagle. We'd realized all along 
that Tom was a genuine wit, but the reception further empha- 
sized that point as the terrific freshman applause gave witness. 

Known variously as the Sage of the Canteen, the Lion of the 
Library, and the (Jay Young Blade from Vernon Hill, Tom 
smiled a greeting to any of these titles. When fun was in 
order Tom was the man to provide it and we owe him a great 
deal for lightening many a moment.

Springfield Tom has earned the reputation, after four years 
of athletic accomplishment, of being the most versatile intra 
mural athlete at the College. He starred in every sport, whether 
it be football, baseball, basketball or what have you. What is 
more he brought into every contest an enthusiasm and love for 
the game that took it from the realm of just another dull after- 
noon to the heights of a genuinely-contested struggle. 

Mac brings into everything he enters a personal zest that 
refuses to consider obstacles and that wins its way to the finish 
despite handicaps. He never gave up, either on the athletic 
field or in any single one of his endeavors. Determination and 
patience were marked characteristics of all his attempts. 

In the class there was none more ready to lend a helping 
hand, more willing to make a sacrifice, or more anxious to be a 
sturdy friend. That his optimism caught us in his influence 
only shows the vigorous force of Springfield Tom.

In Ed we have found the ideal college classmate. Equal to 
any emergency, tireless in defense of a cause, ready and willing 
to sacrifice all for a friend, generous and honest in any case, 
Ed typifies the spirit ol Holy Cross men. Four years have heen 
all too brief in knowing him. 

To say that Ed played in the hand would be understating 
the case. He and the hand were practically indissoluble. When 
it came to a question of drawing forth stirring marches from 
the haunted recesses of a clarinet, Ed admittedly had no peer 
among the musicians. His skits have always been the feature 
of our class receptions. Ed's ingenuity was not even taxed by 
the almost herculean task of imitating a railroad train on one 
memorable occasion, though he has admitted that he does not 
know why he chose to do so in the first place. Moreover, Ed 
confesses that all his jokes ( ?) are original, and although some 
have been found skeptical enough to question this assertion, 
none could prove his charge by quoting the authentic sources. 
Suffice it to say that the co-existence of gloom and Ed has been 
shown to be intrinsically repugnant, and you will realize the 
true value of Ed's comradeship to us. 

One of the chief reasons why the Worcester contingents have 
made so close a race for intramural baseball honors may be 
found in Ed's trusty left arm. Opposing batsmen have wisely 
found it best to watch closely for his "fast one." But off the 
field as well as on it, Ed's happy character remains the same. 
He is one of those rare souls who can take defeat or victory 
with equal grace.

Don never has been known to miss a class. Whether this be 
due to accurate chronological judgment on his part, or to the 
kindness of some benehcient genie presiding over class bells, is 
a matter of conjecture among all who know him. Mac himself 
has steadfastly declined to comment upon this phenomenon of 

Although Mac's heart is ever light, the same appellation can 
not be applied to his head. Well do we remember his perform- 
ance during the terrors of our Junior Specimen, when Mac's 
clear mind pointed out a path through the labyrinthine mazes 
of minor logic, to the astonishment and edification of examin- 
ing professors. Then did we understand why Mac had always 
displayed a callous indifference to any exam. He always knew 
"the matter." 

To go through life with a song on one's lips is surely evidence 
of an enviable disposition. To be a classmate's ready resource 
in times of monetary, scholastic or social difficulty is a true hall- 
mark of loyalty of character. To be a veritable fount of good 
nature and honest cheer marks any man as one of life's indis- 
pensable noblemen. Those are but a few of the reasons why 
our four years' acquaintanceship with Mac have sped by all too

Hal is a veteran of days and days in the Blue Room, famous

thousand times more thrilling than any other, to hear Hal relate 
the story of the horrors and escapades of that mild spot. While 
there he became counsellor to worried freshmen, manager of 
the dorm teams in every sport, bed musser extraordinary and 
story-teller de luxe. 

To all of us Hal offered the hand of good fellowship and we 
accepted gratefully, knowing we would gain by association with 
the Mighty Mite. Four years ot friendship have proven beyond 
a doubt his qualities of steadfastness, loyalty and dependability.

Coming from that little town noted for rubber and for bas- 
ketball teams, Jay at once proceeded to show us that the bas- 
ketball reputation was fully justified. For four years he has 
kept proving that same point over and over, reaching his 
heights this year as high scorer in the interclass league. The 
opposition is still talking about the afternoon when he dropped 
in twenty-nine points to gain his team a single-handed victory. 

In basketball, as in everything he does, Jack is a team player. 
That quality for a time kept his true worth from being appre- 
ciated, but a spirit of co-operation like Johnny's comes too sel- 
dom to be ignored. Sturdy as a New England oak, he could 
be trusted to hold the weight of any responsibility and to lend 
his every effort to the common cause. The esteem in which 
we hold him can be seen from the number and intensity of his 
friendships and from his popularity as a man.

Presenting in person the Pride of Proctor — the lad who came 
clown from the Hills of Vermont to convince merchants in the 
big city of Worcester that they should run ads in the Toma- 
haw\. As advertising manager of the weekly, Bernie not only 
got experience as a salesman but sold ads as well. We who 
know how persuasive his oratory can be only wonder at the 
fact that one or two prospects failed to contract for ads when 
Bernie made a personal call. 

Essentially frank and unaffected himself, nothing roused 
Mac's ire more than pretense. He preached an objective sermon 
against it by remaining his modest self through four years on 
the Hill and made one or two see the futility of artificiality. 
Body at ease, pipe clenched in his teeth, Bernie was thoroughly

Someone has well said of Charlie that his work is his play. 
Charlie's devotion to science is something almost phenomenal; 
it is the constant admiration of all of us. The "Refugium Pec- 
catorum" of the pre-medics he has more than once been an 
untiring and helpful guide; in his hands the knottiest problems 
of chemistry and biology seemed to unwind, as if at a magical 

But Charlie's loyalty is not confined to things scientific. These 
four short years of our companionship with him have not been 
too short to make us recognize in him an unfailing, sympa 
thetic friend, one whom none would hesitate to make a confi- 
dant, who is never without a comforting solution for every form 
of trouble. Kind, generous, with a sense of humor inferior to 
none, and a real appreciation of everything fine, he is the pos- 
sessor of a combination of qualities seldom realized in one 
individual. And to them all his natural modesty adds the last 
refining touch. Never backward, never forward, he is always 
the happy mean. Charlie often protests that he is a much mis- 
understood human, that for some unknown reason his fellows 
have imputed him to qualities that are not his. We have but 
one answer to this. Charlie's position in the judgment of all 
of us is all one could ask, and it is the peculiar faculty of the 
young that they judge one another with uncanny accuracy.

Vernon Hill has two connotations for our minds as we pre- 
pare to leave Pakachoag and Worcester — one of Sunday night 
house dates, the other of Bill. If ever there was a neighborhood 
defender, then it was Hill. Any slighting mention of Vernon 
Hill would set him going into a long and convincing defence 
of that locality, a brief appreciation of the City of Worcester, a 
word of praise for Massachusetts and a discourse about New 
England. All of which made us marvel at the loyalty of such 
a happy chap as Bill. 

Any Worcester Club social event automatically found Bill on 
the committee, for his fellow townsmen appreciated the worth 
of Bill's efforts. As much at home in Loyola as on Vernon 
Hill, Bill lent a wise ear to room discussions, now and then 
injecting an apropos comment. Friends like Bill will make us 
long remember Vernon Hill and Worcester town.

The searching light of intramural opinion, with its particular 
ability to ferret out the flaws in the most impeccable character, 
has failed to indicate anything but admiration for this Brooklyn 
Prep boy; admiration and respect not only for Gerry as one 
of the fellows, but admiration and respect for his ability along 
many and variegated lines of activity. 

When Gerry read at the banquet tendered to the members 
of our class by the faculty in Freshman year, his dramatic 
ability was appreciated and extolled; it was evidenced to a 
greater degree in Sophomore, when he played an important 
role in the Players' fall production, "R. J."; and all through the 
four years he has spent on the Hill, Gerry has shown to audi- 
ences, both public and private, that he was gifted with an 
unusual amount of ability along that line. And that was one 
of few. Gerry gave evidence of his ability as a speaker in the 
intercollegiate debate with B. C., when as a member of the 
Junior Varsity, he aided his teammates to great extent in gain- 
ing a favorable decision in that encounter. And his activities 
did not stop there. Gerry worked as a member of the Toma- 
hawl{ staff in Freshman; his energetic application to his various 
tasks earned for him the regard of all his classmates. 

Gerry had no necessity for advertising his personality. It 
impressed itself upon whomever he engaged in conversation, or 
influenced from the stage or speakers platform. Friends and 
admirers have wished him luck. They anticipate his success.

A tall, husky lad, his hair waving in the breeze, his arms and 
hands in perfect rhythm leading a cheering section through the 
Alma Mater, his deep bass sounding above the crowd, his 
every motion a compelling one! That's the picture of Tom 
that all of us will remember. He made a glorious picture in 
those days of the football season. 

Music was the lite of Tom, and his best love. He sang 
melodiously, strode rhythmically, knew all the tunes and 
hummed carefree through the day. No wonder then that he- 
should lead the Musical Clubs of the College as an officer, sing 
in the Clee Club and Choir, and lend some mighty excellent 
interpretations in the receptions and concerts. 

None the less a student: none the less a triend. lie was a 
man's man with a hulk that came in handy on the held of sport. 
the acumen and training that find expression in debate and 
argument, the social suave graces that abide in contacts. Tom 
also saw fit to aid the Patcher in its year's work, a hit ol sell 
sacrifice which perhaps only the editors can appreciate.

Coming to the Cross as a high jumper, Tom switched to 
broad jumping, took a trip down to Philly and came home 
with the intercollegiate broad jump title hanging on his belt. 
There's no explaining this happy chap who constantly adds 
more surprises to a list that has kept us looking at him in won- 
der for four years. There seems to be no limit to Mac's accom- 
plishments; we would not be too greatly surprised if he ended 
up as a channel swimmer or a bicycle racer. 

As frolicsome as Pan on a holiday, Tom possessed a genuine 
light-heartedness that helped him smile through trial and dis- 
couragement. He delighted in nothing more than annoying 
Jim Zyntell and the word battles between these friends are 
campus classics 

On the track there was no more determined and faithful a 
man than Mac, his teammates appreciated his trustworthiness 
and elected him to the captaincy of track. He fulfilled the 
duties of captain, characteristically, in a way worthy of Holy

Since results are the standard oi man's ability, Jim need have 
no fear of comparing his record with any member of the class. 
Consistently he has been in the forefront of those whose accom- 
plishments make them stand out. As captain of varsity tennis, 
as coach of the freshman basketball team, and a prince of good 
fellows, Nich takes his well-earned place in the ranks of 'ii. 

In Freshman, Jim (ought his way through stern opposition to 
win the school tennis championship and then in Sophomore 
he joined the varsity net men and has been with them ever 
since as No. 1 man. Playing basketball, Nich was a regular 
forward on the frosh team, and earned his varsity letter as a 
second-year man. As coach of the freshmen this year he showed 
ability of direction and management that speak well for his 

Jim needs no encomiums. He has worked hard and has done 
well, meriting respect and friendship. With what he has to 
offer, life cannot but return success.

The class of '33 made no wiser choice than when it named 
Al as "best all-around man," for a four-year record as an ath- 
lete, scholar and gentleman fully earned the honor for the Meri- 
den lad. As a third baseman on the varsity team for three 
years he was adjudged the most brilliant inhelder in collegiate 
ranks; as a scholar he ranked with the highest men in the class 
through four years of varied subjects. 

Holding down the post formerly defended by "Jumping Joe" 
Dugan, Jerry Shanahan and other Purple immortals, Al's bril- 
liant fielding and heavy hitting entitled him to a place in Cru- 
sader athletic history. His sensational stops and his bullet-like 
pegs cut down base-hit after base-hit; his potent bat drove in 
many a timely run. 

As a gentleman Al was restrained, courteous and friendly. 
He brought to all his associates a warmth of personality that 
was ever welcome and a friendship that cannot be over-valued.

Fresh from a conquest oi Jamaica Plain and that nearby 
suburb known as Boston, Jim brought his handsome self to 
Holy Cross four years ago to spread his friendship abroad over 
the campus of Mt. St. James. Possessed of a personality, warm 
and glowing, Jim early won himself a host ol triends and has 
kept adding new ones every day. 

As manager of freshman football Jim showed an efficiency 
that set a high-mark for efficiency. Consistent attention to detail 
marked Jim in this position and it has characterized him con 
stantly. This same thoroughness was in evidence when Jim 
acted as chairman of the Boston Club's Christmas formal dance. 
It helped considerably in making that dance the brilliant event 
that it was. 

No favor was too great for Jim to perform for a friend; he 
did it with a cheerful willingness that satisfied the true test of 
friendship. We hope to meet men as fine as Jim when we leave 
the Cross.

The prestige which Cheverus Hi",h of Portland has attained 
in her students at Holy Cross was doubly enlarged by the 
advent of Ed. A "Magna" man, Ed has built up a reputation 
as one of the most thoughtful and brilliant men in the present 
Senior class. 

Industrious, restrained, enthusiastic, modest, talented, quick 
and keen witted, generous, are some of his fine virtues. His 
knacks ran to history, philosophy, and the classics. Ed was an 
excellent writer, though few knew it, and should have appeared 
in both Purple and Tomahawk^, but he never seemed to get 
around to such things, being kept thoroughly busy in the 
Library and elsewhere. 

Ed will be remembered for the masterful disputations and 
circles and lectures which he gave in philosophy, for the work 
which he did for the Patcher, and for the staunch defense 
which he usually set up in behalf of Maine and the men from 
Maine. He always had a bodyguard of Pete and Mert to sing 
a Greek chorus to his State Anthem. What words would not 
do, actions might.

As chairman ot the Met Club's big Easter splurge, Tom dis- 
played a business ability ranking somewhere near that of the 
wizards of Wall Street or a diplomatic tact worthy of a Machia- 
velli. Few can realize and understand all the worry, the care 
for details, the plans and changes of plans, that the management 
of such a dance necessitates. Unruffled, Tom went smiling 
through it all. 

Okie has distinguished himself as an intramural athlete and 
talented Thespian. Second Loyola's athletic teams were incom- 
plete without Tom's encouraging presence; the Dramatic So- 
ciety drafted him for a prominent role, that of King, in the 
major production ot the year, "Hamlet," a part which as the 
critics wrote was more than ably played. 

Tom's support of an activity meant only one thing, that it 
would be carried out successfully. He was not satisfied with 
partial success, but ever aimed at complete accomplishment. 
That he has done so, who will deny.

A mop of curly hair surmounting a jovially grinning coun- 
tenance — that is a portrait of Tom. If ever there existed an 
Irishman who looks Irish it is this self-same lad who daily 
brought his cheer from the city of Worcester to the Hill ot 
Pleasant Springs. When we knew him but slightly we expected 
him to speak in a rich brogue, but the lack of it has not made 
us admire the less that drawly, yet musical, voice of his. 

Possessed of an abundant sense of humor, Tom was usually 
the focal point of a laughing group that had gathered to hear 
him dispense his typical wit. His humor was keen and satiric 
and never was he wanting an appreciative audience; some of 
his anecdotes have become campus classics and are still re- 
called with a chuckle. 

Tom's unfailing good nature and his general friendliness 
made him many a friend at the library, where he whiled away 
much of his time at the desk. If it was in his power to help, 
rest assured that it would be forthcoming. Time will find it 
hard to erase the picture ot this cherubic Celt who immeasur- 
ably brightened our days.

Knowing that it is highly dangerous to name one trait as 
characteristic ol a man, we do it anyway and present to you 
one who is a hard worker. It mayhaps he a trite phrase, of 
course, hut it is the only one that will do justice to this red- 
cheeked inhabitant oi the city that is forty-five miles from 
Boston. Nothing else could as well describe Hugh, whose 
seemingly inexhaustible source ot energy has aroused our 
amazement for the past four years. 

A student who really knows his matter, seldom caught un- 
prepared, he was the delight of professors. A member of the 
Worcester club who spared no effort to make a success of the 
club's activities, he was the pride of his fellow-townsmen. As 
a sodalist he was zealous in winning recruits, and as perfect in 
senior year he made the group a really active and important 
part of campus doings. No task was too difficult for Hugh to 
perform; no plan too arduous for him to complete. 

After watching him tor four years we can still but admire 
his enthusiasm and shake our heads in awe at his labor. It's 
hard to credit one fellow with all that Hugh has done, but the 
evidence is incontrovertible. Hughs efforts cannot go long 
unrewarded in a world that recognizes real merit!

Best Writer of the Class. 

Taking into account his record as a steady and able contribu- 
tor to the Purple, we voted Leo as the class' best writer. Ever 
since Freshman year Leo has delighted readers of the literary 
monthly with his skillfully wrought presentations in prose and 
verse. It was in the field of the short story that Leo was at his 
best, and there he displayed an imagination and a technic 
worthy of a professional author. 

Transferring from a straight arts course into the pre-med 
field is a change that would daunt a less adaptable and hardy 
soul, but Lee made the transition in such an easy manner that 
it seemed the most casual of accomplishments. Into the com- 
plications of lab he brought the same determination and the 
same native ability that had made him outstanding in the study 
of the classics. 

Prominent in every field he aspired to, Leo won our admira- 
tion and esteem for the level-headed way in which he accepted 
his success. Even more, he was never too busy to forget his 
friends and any service he could do for them.

Tom started his career at the Cross hy impressing us during 
the first few weeks with his air of busy energy, his encouraging 
smile and his helpful spirit. Through four years he has con- 
tinued to impress us with new and admirable traits ol character, 
almost daily displaying a new side worthy of esteem. 

Residence in Worcester town did not keep Tom from being 
active in extra-curricular programs; in fact, he was much more 
active than many already on the Hill. In dramatics, in debat- 
ing and his other interests he was eager, interested and gener 
ous with his time. 

None was more zealous than Tom when some project was 
ahead; he spared no effort or sacrifice to gain success. We 
accepted him unreservedly as a genuine friend and loyal sup- 
porter. Coming into our lives unobtrusively, he nevertheless 
has left an indellible impression upon them.

A typical New Yorker, it is only natural that Bob should not 
hail from the metropolis of which he writes so entertainingly. 
A cosmopolite in every sense of the word, Bob calls home the 
charming little town of Glen Ridge, across the river in New 
Jersey. The big town is his hobby, and into his writings of it 
he brings a new and attractively personal slant. 

Suave and urbane to the «th degree, Bob was voted almost 
unanimously "most debonair." Who but he could delightfully 
glide his way, complacent and thoroughly unruffled, through 
the vicissitudes a career on the Hill? His jaunty buoyancy was 
always a thing of joy to beholders and a continual delight to 
us who knew him so well. 

Into his much-perused contributions to the Purple and the 
Tomahaw\, Bob brought a civilized and sparkling wit, with a 
broad knowledge of contemporary backgrounds. His 
"Granted" column was an outstanding feature of the weekly 
for two years, and his criticisms of contemporary drama in the 
Purple were awaited with real eagerness. Bob not only said 
things well, but said them brilliantly. Brooks Atkinson and 
Percy Hammond had better look to their laurels when Seton 
blithely crosses the horizon.

Anthing artificial or affected was absolutely foreign to Joe's 
nature. Himself an open-hearted, trank-speaking lad, his ex- 
ample preached an eloquent sermon to others, and his boyish 
enthusiasm and his sincere willingness to be a real friend made 
us early appreciate his qualities as a man. 

Active for several years in Crusader Council, Joe was called 
on this year to revive The Crusader, the council's news bulle- 
tin of some years ago. Directing all his energy to the task, Joe 
brought out a paper that ranked on a par with the rest of the 
campus publications. All who read it commended it highly. 
Besides, Joe found interest in the stage. Many of us recall his 
splendid character work in "Julius Caesar," his poise, his mas- 
tery of emotion. 

In another the qualities of straightforwardness and simple 
directness that marked Joe would be construed as naive, but in 
him they were splendid and admirable traits. Unquestioning 
trust and deep sincerity marked every one of Joe's numerous 
friendships in the ranks ol '33.

"The songbird of thirty-three." Well does Joe deserve this 
title. The success of all the class receptions and class banquets 
can be traced to his melodious tenor voice. The annual trips 
of the Musical Clubs spread Joe's fame afar and in the cities 
visited you can still hear mention made of the marvelous voice 
of Joe Pay ton. 

Joe was a natural singer but many natural singers have come 
and gone here on the Hill without leaving the favorable im- 
pression that Joe did. He was possessed of that charming per- 
sonality, characteristic of all famous singers, that won for him 
a high place of esteem in his class and school. Early the class 
came to a knowledge that it could depend on Joe's co-operation 
and his generosity in putting his time and musical talent at 
their disposal for any and every affair. Joe not only offered his 
own services, hut as we saw in Sophomore, also those of the 
Pavton family which combined that vear to put over one ot 
the most successful receptions ever given on the Hill. 

Joe's name has always assured the success of our entertain- 
ments. We will remember him for this. And though we know 
him as a serious minded student too, our memory will more 
brightly contain him as "the songbird of the class!"

The Economics Club rendered to Bill what was his when it 
elected him as its president. The choice was a perfect one as 
the club well appreciated when, early in the year, he demon- 
strated a splendid facility in running the affairs of the club. 

Bill gave a lot of his time to his beloved business but like the 
real business man he is, he found time for other interests. His 
charming manner and his varied interests made him a pleas- 
ant and much sought after companion. Throughout the four 
years he has been loyal to his native city, Brooklyn, which Bill 
claims is the backbone of Metropolitan New York. In his 
defense of "The City of Homes and Churches," Bill developed 
an unusual ability as a debater. 

When we grow older and look back on happiest days of our 
life, one picture that will surely come back to us will be that 
of Bill sitting in a chair, his glasses pushed back on his fore- 
head and a sparkle in his eyes. Once again we will live the 
days when Bill let fall words of wisdom and we will turn back 
to our work with a little of the old happiness that he gave us 
here on the Hill.

Jim carried his massive frame around in such good-natured 
fashion through tour years of day-ducking from Clinton that his 
easy disposition has hecome a byword on the Hill. Forthcom- 
ing exams, long hours in the lab, missing a bus by seconds — 
not even these could take from Jim the geniality that was pe- 
culiarly his. 

Lab-mates of Jim confess that they would have had a much 
more difficult time of it without his gratuitous dispensing of 
good cheer, wit and humor. For a while Jim had us worried 
about his losing weight but when he informed us that it was 
the long hours and not the worry we understood it very easily. 

Clinton could have done us no greater favor than giving us 
a four-year loan of Jim. He brightened everything he touched, 
encouraged everyone he met, and made us lifelong admirers!

This happy son of Connecticut and of a famous politician 
has as his underlying motive of success rock-ribbed labor. From 
consistent work, an ambitious nature, an unperturbed ideal, 
Emile cannot but gain scholastic merits as well as good things 
in times to come. 

Emile came into our collegiate circles at the commencement 
of Junior year from a Canadian boarding school. Although 
the system was new to him, and the environment strange, he 
soon became well known and well liked by everyone of us. 
Especially did there come to our notice that virtue in him 
which men call tenacity. Whatever his convictions might be, 
Emile would remain adamant to the last, sincere, gloriously 
fighting for what he upheld as right and true and good. 

There was another course besides curriculum that Emile 
enrolled in. Some say it was the Science of Romance. Cer- 
tainly many of us have sought out this broad scholar for some 
necessary "Dorothy Dix" advice. Strangely enough this Del- 
phian Oracle of Venus spoke many practical counsels.

Never a lad to do things in half-way fashion, Jack gave a 
sales talk in economics class that is still talked about. On that 
memorable occasion he was a salesman for Blank Cheese and 
entered the classroom armed with mountains of literature and 
two cases of samples. Not only did he win converts to his 
cheese, but won the everlasting gratitude of forty-odd business 
students for his lavish gifts of cheese. 

Zazu was one of the first to don white coat and apron way 
back in Freshman days and has functioned ever since then as 
a star tray-toter. Not all the vicissitudes of that thankless job 
could take from him the placidity and serenity that he brought 
with him from the heart of New Hampshire. 

Exemplifying all the heralded New England virtues, Jack 
was without the lack of warmth that we had expected of the 
staid Northeast. Glowing with determination and warmly 
personable, he cut no niche that was not unselfish, and made 
no mark that was not friendly.

Frank is a sturdy type ol youth, responsible, earnest, sincere. 
He came East, lour years ago, from the lamed city of rubber 
and dirigibles, driving a gallant mode] of 1917 touring car. 
( ieography meant little to him then, as it does now, for a 
change from the prairies ol Ohio to Massachusetts could do 
little but add to the wide popularity of his attractive person 

A golf enthusiast, Frank began in Freshman year to try for 
the championship of the cow pasture links on the Hill. He 
was one of the first to play regularly at the Pakachoag course, 
and has since been driving many miles in his mechanical toy 
in search of the new and difficult links. 

Usually happy, contented, optimistic, a wide reader, an inter- 
ested student and philosopher, Frank did us all proud in know- 
ing him. Companionship with Frank was never made of the 
drab, dullness of uneventful life, but rather the unique variety 
and novelty of adventurous friendship. We began to see more 
in the sky than mere rain, and to find more in the world than

Another member of the delegation from western Massachus- 
etts, George has completely won his way into the friendship of 
'33. A keen and successful student, George has made a name 
for himself in other fields as well. He has been outstanding 
in intramural athletics, playing on corridor teams in every listed 
sport. Baseball, football, soccer, basketball, tennis — all drew 
him. George's great enthusiasm for sports kept his corridor 
teams always in the thick of the championship fights. 

As a student he was steady and consistent, well prepared, 
always ranking high in class. And woe to the professor who 
failed to make a point clear to George. With persistent curi- 
osity and determination, George would dig deeper and deeper 
into the problem until its solution satisfied everyone. More 
than a few, too, were secretly grateful to George for his insis- 

On the athletic field, as everywhere, George is a sportsman, 
taking the breaks as they come; seldom complaining and usual- 
ly cheerful. He will meet life the same way, with a grin on his 
face and determination in his heart.

An ambitious youth who could make a baseball talk was in 
our ranks on that September clay lour years ago when we 
joined the Crusader legions. Jack Barry's tutelage has so aided 
him that at his command the self-same baseball now speaks four 
different languages, but Larry still has the same determination 
and sincerity that made us welcome him as a friend in '29. 

Intent on joining the ranks of Purple baseball immortals, 
Larry's early efforts won him a place on the freshman team's 
hurling corps. Sophomore year found his efforts directed 
toward the varsity nine, and lew worked more arduously on 
the field than Larry. His reward came in Junior when he be- 
came a regular varsity pitcher and did much to add to the suc- 
cess of that aggregation. This spring he was on the firing line 
once again, mercilessly hurling the pellet past the bats of aston- 
ished enemy batsmen. 

Into all his activities Larry brings the same tenacity that he 
gave to baseball. He thrives on work and revels in tasks that 
would dismay one less determined. In life, just as on the dia- 
mond, we know that Larry can be depended on to outguess the 
opposition, and win himself many a striking victory.

Four years are all too short to probe beneath the subtleness 
of Jim and discover the qualities that make up so likeable a 
chap. Work or play, Jim is ever the scholar and gentleman par 

Jim did some noteworthy things in the Classics, but found 
that Pre-Med would be better to his talents and enrolled in a 
more difficult and laborious course. With generous application, 
a brilliant head, easy came the high scholastic honors. He was 
out to do things in College, and did them. 

A firm believer in the loan system, Jim held that a man's 
credit was never questioned unless he were caught borrowing 
from the poor boxes. His cigarettes, clothes, etc., were gener- 
ously lent to us all. Nor can we who lived on 3rd O'Kane ever 
forget his act of restoring to the boys their Saturday out per- 
missions when the lighting system was mysteriously interrupted. 
He was always like that — honest, clean humored, a good life

Through four years of life at the Cross there was no more 
genial a host than Ed. When you entered his room you had a 
feeling ol being really and thoroughly welcome, so sincere were 
his words of greeting and his gestures of friendship. Generous 
with everything he possessed, he thought nothing of making 
a communistic division of his money, his cigarettes and what- 

Approach of exams found Ed even more in demand than 
usual, for his class notes were invariably complete, thorough 
and neatly typed. The number of fellows he has helped 
through exams would be enormous if it could be justly calcu- 
lated, nor did Ed ask any thanks. Our gratitude, nevertheless, 
is boundless. 

Combining a love for literature and an avocation for science 
in one personality, Ed lived with a zest and spirit that made his 
every action noteworthy. Though he wanted his lriendship 
taken for granted, it was too valuable to do so, and its memory 
will be hard to lose in the years after we leave the Hill.

Presenting one of the founders of the Monster Club, the hero 
of the Gobby Boys, the co-author of a three-chapter novel that 
died in infancy, and the businesslike city editor of the Toma- 
hawk\, all in the modest person of John de Lacey. Fertile in 
ideas and endowed with tremendous energy, Jack's city editing 
left little to be desired and he made an impressive figure among 
the welter of noise that each Monday night signified that the 
Tomahawk^ was going to press. 

The Monster Club was an idea partly of his invention, and 
all during the past year he was one of its leading members. 
Second Loyola, the headquarters of the grisly crew, had little 
repose when the Monsters were in session or planning some 
new deviltry. It made little difference to Jack what figure he 
portrayed; his repertoire ranged from the Hairy Ape to the 
Mummy. On one big occasion he played Jekyll and Hyde at 
the same time, with benefit of makeup. He hoped to portray 
the Phantom of the Opera but his hard-hearted neighbors, 
obdurate against his pleas for art, refused to lend their crimson 
bedspread. Undeterred, he employed three sweaters and a 
jacket, and the show went on. Jack is that kind of a fellow.

Alter three years as a hard-working Pre-med, Worcester's 
lair-faced Bill astounded classmates, puzzled short-order men 
and enjoyed himself thoroughly by asking for food at the Can- 
teen in terms of biology. He tried to bring scientific terms 
into those lengthy bridge games, but that idea was killed at 
birth by the practical-minded townsmen of his who played 
bridge to play bridge. Those memorable bridge games will be 
topics of Worcester discussion lor a long time, especially that 
winter series which ended at six o'clock one Saturday night. 

There was no thought of resisting Bill's smile. It was the 
signal of good-fellowship, good nature and good times, and it 
marked Bill everywhere he went on and off the campus. A 
staunch supporter of the Worcester Club, a lover of the Cross, 
Bill was a sturdy defender of both. His early-morning smile 
struck for us the keynote of a happy day.

Introducing the big little man from Rensselaer, but who, 
judging by his actions should have come from Missouri. 
Herbie will believe anything you tell him, that is, if you can 
prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Not that he indulges in 
meaningless argument, not at all; all Herb wants you to do 
is prove your statement. Be warned gentle reader, be warned 
never try to put over a fast one on Herbert unless you have 
plenty of evidence to back it up. 

As a bridge player Herbert knew no equal. With M. T. and 
Shawn as charter members of the club all Herbie had to do 
was find a fourth. In this capacity he was often wont to wend 
his way from room to room heralded by such remarks as, "Any- 
one want a hand of bridge?" "How about a fourth?" Seldom 
indeed was the time that he could not inveigle someone to 
desert the straight and narrow for a few moments' diversion. 

Do not get a wrong impression of Herb as a student from 
the above description. He was a Pre-Med and a Pre-Med that 
does not "hit the books" ceases to be a future doctor — suddenly. 
Therefore the conclusion we must come to is that he is one 
of those rare individuals who can both work and play well.

A stalwart contribution ol Brooklyn to our ranks, this red- 
thatched lad with the engaging grin has ranked high in our 
estimation and friendship. He has been a leader in intramural 
athletics, a success in the classroom, and a great chap to have 
as a friend. 

Possessed of a splendid physique and endowed with strength, 
Jud was a man to be feared in any sport. In football he was 
on the varsity squad and then later was a crashing center for his 
corridor teams. In baseball he was one of the best catchers in 
intramural ranks and unwary baserunners soon came to respect 
his bullet-like peg. 

In the social field Jud also was a star, and his presence in- 
variably graced every social function of any importance whatso- 
ever in the town. He was chosen, because of his all-around 
talent, as chairman of the patrons for the Senior Ball in June. 
Such a position certainly justifies the class' and chairman's con- 
fidence in him, a confidence springing from Jus' ability.

"Have you ever been to North Brookfield?" was Ed's invari- 
able rejoinder to the fervid praises of Paris by a professor of 
French in Freshman year, and his insistent repetition of that 
question made us wonder just what sort of place this town was. 
Though four years have passed and many of us still have 
failed to set foot in that classic town, we can judge from Ed 
that it must be a great place if it turns out such thorough-going 
gentlemen as he 

Capable of holding his own, intellectually, with any in the 
class, Ed took his classes in the easy-going stride that accom 
plished a great deal with little apparent effort. In bull-sessions 
he held the floor often for expositions of pet subjects, keeping 
the gathering thoroughly interested all the while. In every- 
thing he did he was dependable and successful, and no finer 
friend could be found.

Imaginative and thoughtfulj Chris was still essentially 
human and found time to make contacts of the friendliest sort. 
He took with him into every single enterprise a poetic soul, an 
attractive personality and a persistence that brooked no obstacles. 
His contributions to the I'm pie were delicately woven products 
of an artistic nature; his poems were airy and teatherdight, his 
short stories were subtle, restrained and polished. As an 
editorial writer for the Tomahawk^, he denounced sham and 
hypocrisy in vigorous terms, enunciated constructive principles 
and expounded sound ideas. 

Tenacious in his love tor the higher things of life, he spent 
tour years in devotion to his ideals impressing us with their 
value. Restrained and courteous, he personified gentlemanli- 
ness in all his dealings. Communion with his ideas has been 
more than beneficial; hence our friendly admiration for Chris 
as a man.

The ambassador from Marlboro needs no credentials; he has 
aided and promoted good will in an unofficial capacity during 
four years as a Holy Cross man. Blessed with a humorous and 
witty nature, he has been the center of many an impromptu 
gathering and his popularity as an amateur entertainer is 
exceeded only by the number and depth of his friendships. 

For two years Ray was an unsung member of the varsity foot- 
ball squad, seeing little service in action. Circumstances com- 
bined to give him his big chance last fall and he took every 
advantage of the opportunity. Acclaim was heard on every 
side for the steady play of this hitherto unheralded fullback, 
who was plunging his way through enemy lines and bringing 
down opposing ball carriers. 

The patient determination that marked Ray as a football man 
has characterized many of his other activities. We cannot help 
but acknowledge that we have been made "Richer" by his

Taking all that came with the same ease of spirit and tran- 
quillity of mind, Bill has been a soothing influence throughout 
our troubled scholastic careers. Not that he took adversity sit- 
ting down, but rather than ranting against fate, he quietly and 
firmly took steps to remove all obstacles in his path. Quite 
capable of asserting himself, he impressed on us his highly 
individual ideas. 

Journeying along the business road. Bill was not at all 
daunted or intimidated by thoughts of ledgers, balance 
sheets and credits. He went his methodical way through every 
difficulty, conquering whatever barred the way. 

Early in our college years we learned to appreciate the sound, 
tearless qualities that made friendship with Bill so worthwhile. 
Not once has he disappointed us in our high estimate of him. 
Always has he stood, courageous, stolid, steady bulwark of 
Manhood and Principle.

Worcester Club activities could depend on Toms presence 
and support, whether they he dances, receptions, bridge games 
or athletics. All that he entered was brightened by Tom's pres- 
ence, for he owned a nature of such cheer that others eventual 
ly came under its smiling spell and capitulated to its appeal. 

Tom and Joe Donahue were inseparable buddies and they 
did everything together. One was almost certain to be found 
with the other, and they lived on terms of perfect equality 
and brotherhood. A hasty vision of that famous yellow road- 
ster on the streets of Worcester inevitably foreshadowed a 
shout of "Hi, Tom!" that brought an answering grin and the 
offer of a ride. 

Willing to sacrifice to prove his friendship, Tom made more 
than ordinary efforts on behalf of those he liked.

Pat's easy friendship and his ready co-operaiton in any enter-

to it before. Everyone knew him and everyone liked him. 

That his fellow-Worcesterites understand his intrinsic worth 
is evident from the fact that they elected him to the presidency 
ol the Worcester Club. In that office, he has faithfully and 
capably executed his duties, thereby adding another achieve- 
ment to his lengthy list of deeds. 

When help and energy were needed, Pat was always among 
the first to offer his services, and memories of college days at 
the Cross will ever be alive with remembrances of all that Pat 
has done for us and been to us.

Football fans need no introduction to Tony, for his three 
years of achievement as a brilliant back won him acclaim all 
over the East. Fnemy teams recall with dismay his crashing 
speed through the line, his shiftiness in the open field, his 
sturdiness as a defense man and the bullet-like accuracy of his 
long passes. Brown will never forget that autumn afternnon 
when he tossed a 50-yard pass straight into the arms of the 
racing Rill Coakley, far down the field. 

Ravvy has given us more to admire than his ability as a 
football player. He has been active in extra-scholastic affairs, 
he has ranked above the average in class, and he has the knack 
of winning and holding the liking ot all be meets. On corridor 
he was as good-natured and ready to lend a hand as he was 
brilliant on the striped field.

Presenting to the world a serious and thoughtful look o! con

have not yet learned to know him well. We who have enjoyed 
his friendship know that beneath that shell there is a rampant 
good-nature, a ready spirit of fun, and a willing desire to par-

Joe won fame in Junior year as cjuestion-answerer extraordi- 
nary in Section C. Hardly a difficulty that could be or was 
offered would phase the aplomb of this intellectual gentleman. 
On one occasion he defended himself against the heckling and 
questioning of a whole class in a manner worthy of a platform 

Friendship with Joe took time to establish itself, but once 
established it was a mutual liking that persisted through trial 
and circumstance.

Listen, world! Above is our idea of an athlete, scholar, fire- 
man and gentleman. A perfect example of each. Shortly 
alter Jim's arrival on the Hill his athletic ability was recognized 
when his mates elected him to captain the 1929 Freshman foot- 
ball team, only to be again honored with this title, four years 
later, as captain of the 1932 varsity football machine of Holy 

Always smiling in defeat as well as victory. A good winner 
but better still, a splendid loser. We regret that in the opening 
game of the year ol Jim s captaincy he met with an accident 
which kept him on the sidelines for the remainder of the sea- 
son. We knew him as a leader previous to this unfortunate 
mishap and we will continue to remember him as a leader 

We thank Brookline for sending him to us and hope that 
they have been partly repaid, during the summer months, by 
his fire-fighting ability, while an enthusiastic member of their 
fire department. Ladder 1 was his assignment and like his 
other duties he did more than was expected of him. 

Not only was this member of the "Flanagan-Ryan" combina- 
tion a student of football, but baseball, hockey and basketball 
saw him ever busy in the field of athletics. 

He leaves us to teach and coach the men of tomorrow, those 
principles of manhood which he so well exemplifies. If his 
ability to teach is equal to his ability to make friends and his 
willingness to help others, we rest assured that tomorrow's 
men will be true Crusaders. 

Yours for continued success, Jimma, while your class con- 
tinues to cheer you.

Phil's cherubic countenance beamed nightly from behind 
the glass door of the porter's lodge, where he operated a com- 
plicated switchboard, sold newspapers and answered questions, 
doing all with a casual ease that belied his characteristic spirit 
of energy. How he found time to study is far beyond us, but 
we have the undeniable fact that an honor list was unique if 
his name was not among those adorning it. 

As a Worcester Clubbite, Phil served efficiently and often on 
the committees which looked after the social and financial suc- 
cess of the organization's many affairs. The Scientific Society 
and the Sodality likewise learned how much his efforts aided 
in achieving success. 

Justly popular, Phil had a welcome and encouraging word 
for all and passed again and again the trying tests of true 
character and ability.

Showing an indomitable spirit on the football field and in 
all his ventures, Connie has been characterized by a striking 
perseverance. Remaining in the football background for three 
years, he came into the limelight last tail as a first-string tackle, 
and received the recognition he deserved as a steady, depend- 
able, heady lineman. 

Con had his first chance to stand out from the throng when 
he served as beadle to historic Section D in Sophomore year. 
Under his care, that hitherto unimportant post became vir- 
tually an assistant-piofessorship, with Con explaining all the 
Latin and Greek allusions come across in class study. 

Bringing his friendly self to Richer s room in Loyola, Con 
became famed as the author of gems of campus wit, defender 
of scholastic philosophy, and orator in general. There he 
furthered the friendships formed in previous years and found 
new ones.

Would that someone might ask, "Who in the class of '5$ 
plugs most, with the least recognition lor his efforts ?" The 
answer most assuredly would bring forth the name of Lowells 
handsomest and most prolific specimen. 

Tom, as the boys know him, lacks to a certain extent, the 
eccentric characteristics that go to make his room-mate one of 
the better known playboys about town. Notwithstanding all 
this though, he takes his bow as the successful chairman ot 
the Christmas affair held at the Nassau Country Club, «;nd too, 
lest we forget, as vice-president and treasurer extraordinary of 
the biggest and most altruistic of all Cross cliques, by name, 
the Lonely Hearts Club. 

A gambler and plugger of the last order, "Rush" distin- 
guished himself by his colorful work both in athletic fields and 
scholastic endeavors, claiming about the most rewards for 
Intramural competition here on the Hill. He led an all-con- 
quering football team during the fall of Sophomore year and 
played on the best of Cross hockey and baseball class combina- 

Lest we forget, (it's not much the secret now though) Tom 
is one of the luckier men who occasionally figures in the teas 
and dansants sponsored by the young ladies from about the 
Hills of Weston. Always the gentleman, it seems that his type 
is demanded everywhere, and undoubtedly, ever will be!

Alter a year with the Frosh footballers and another season 
with the varsity squad, Pete decided to forsake intercollegiate 
competition and devote himseli to studies, Worcester Club 
activities, the football hand and intramural sports. In every 
one of these fields he distinguished himseli as one ol the fore- 
most, applying to each in turn much ol his abundant and well- 
directed energy. 

It was surprising to note the unworned ease with which 
Pete adapted himself to one new activity after another. Where 
other men would need lengthy periods for readjustment, Pete 
acclimated himself relatively soon, and was shortly an adept in 
the new phase of activity. 

Forgetting all else but the job in hand, Pete's power of con- 
centration was all the more remarkable in view of the fact that 
it had to be done in the bustle of the Canteen, the noise of the 
day room, or the smoke-filled atmosphere of Loyola's halls. 
Ability like Pete's will win its own way.

Not content with a college education, Joe caused weeks of 
wonderment on the Hill by attending night school classes in the 
city. Until the explanation finally arrived, we were in much 
doubt as to the story behind the night classes, but when it came 
we agreed with Joe that college courses alone were not enough 
for a general education. 

Joe amazed us through four years by his ability at finding 
new and strange jobs and by his versatility in the field of intra- 
mural athletics. He drove cars, gave bridge lessons, clerked 
and had scores of other occupations, slipping from one to an- 
other with a speed and an easy assurance that was baffling. 

In intramurals there were few more adept in varied sports 
than Joe. Football, baseball, and basketball — in all he was 
better than the average. His energy in everything was famous 
on the campus, and as a man he continually offered new 
reasons for liking and respecting him.

Tom won our unanimous admiration tor his manliness and 

Sincere and direct in all his dealings, Tom looked for those

Fun and Blaise are inseparable. Whether it is a new orgy 
ot the Monster Club, a game between the Gobbv Boys and 
the Dastards, a ride to some distant spot, or a mere quiet ( : i 
evening on Second Loyola, Blaise can always be depended on 
for antics that are totally mad and thoroughly hilarious. He 
could imitate anything, mimic anyone and be a personal 
humorist in a way that defied analysis but encouraged laugh- 
ter. "'What's Blaise doing?" was the inevitable question in dull 
moments, and he could be trusted to do something entirely 
unexpected and uproariously funny. 

Showing a more serious side, Blaise delivered an eloquently- 
forceful address at our Junior banquet, a powerful and 
dramatic oration on "Italy and Mussolini" in the oratorical 
contest, and has ever since been speaking, sometimes humor- 
ously, sometimes seriously, with complete success and greater 
prominence. Always in demand, Blaise has been the much 
needed measure ot wit and sobriety in our midst, the laugh 
vitamin in our college days, and undeniably the happier part 
of our memories.

Versatility is a much-abused class hook word, hut its use in 
Paul's case is thoroughly justified, for he has manifested it in 
no undecided way. A varsity baseball man, a class football 
star, a brilliant basketball player, one of the school's best tennis 
players, he leaves behind him a record of athletic accomplish- 
ments unique in range. 

"Dutch"' really was a crack entertainer, too. He was a 
comedian, a mimic and a pantominist in one, and his many 
daily exhibitions, whether in his room, locker or elsewhere, 
found always an enthusiastic audience. No one was better 
able to keep up good spirits in any gathering! 

Paul has many another talent, some already gleaned, others 
hidden. We are sure that life and the world to come in its 
exactitude and appeal for ability will find his virtues and vest- 
ments of brillance, and will bring them to the fore. Always 
keep your high ideals, Paul, the world needs them badly!

The first time we heard Mike singing, we had to look twice 
hefore we were certain that the powerful, resonant voice we 
heard came from the slight, quiet-appearing fellow whom we 
were beginning to know and like. Since those early days we've 
learned to recognize that voice anywhere, and it's always been 
a symbol of good-fellowship, whether sounding with the glee 
club, on the stage of Fenwick, or in an impromptu gathering 
where music was in order. 

The seriousness characteristic of Mike disappears when he 
sings, and he reveals himself as the congenial, engaging chap 
that he is. For four years he has voluntarily remained in the 
background, but has not been reluctant to do his share in 
assisting a class activity. In all he does he is consistent and 
dependable, though modesty has kept from him the wide recog- 
nition he deserves.

Pianist, dancer, master of ceremonies, suave "man about

first clays at the Cross. It was a football rally in the fall of 
Freshman vear that the dapper Paul made his bow to us as an 
entertainer, and the success ol that debut has kept him in 
constant demand ever since. 

Filled to the very finger-tips with energy, enthusiasm, Paul 
won and kept a wide popularity. He was elected to the chair- 
manship of the Class' Junior Prom, the event which he had 
dreamed for three years, and performed his lengthy duties 
and manilold tasks in a manner which produced one ol: the 
finest proms in years, and which was a patent tribute to his 
ability and industry. He worked on all kinds of committees, 
managed the journal concession, did newspaper reporting for 
Worcester and Boston papers, aided the Patcher, and a hun- 
dred other things to be recalled over a length ol hours. Only 
the world dare ask him the question: "And what more : "

The coming threat to sickness in Doctor Sharpies, that hun- 
dred per center in good natured volume, will certainly be as 
great as he was to gloom and ill feeling for the past four years. 
Perhaps his work will entail only rose water and sugar pills if 
he uses with as devastating an effect his homely humor and his 
injected auto suggestive happiness and health. 

Spence has been versatile under the supervision of Father 
Busam, Brother McCarthy, baseball, football and basketball. 
Taken as a whole, he has been most versatile under the pert 
direction of Jim Brennan, the wild scientist. Even the latter's 
charge did not deter Spence from gaining hall-wide fame as the 
bean-ball artist of Second Alumni. 

The gossips have it, as is unusually the case, that Doc 
Sharpies was the only one able to really keep a secret, the only 
one to carefully guard other people's confidences. From his 
social work on Vernon Hill we can only wonder what's be- 
neath the hat. At least Spence is cultivating an admirable vir- 
tue for his profession.

A bounding stick of dynamite with fuse always sputtering, 
an India rubber ball ol boundless energy, a mad Marx who has 
out-Marxed the famous bi others — that gives just a faint idea 
of Dan. For four years he has been the center of exciting iun 
that has at times reached heights of ludicrous insanity. There 
is no apparent limit to his range; he has varied from Joe 
Cook's six Hawaiians to the army of the unemployed, doing 
any and all with an abandoned fervor that brought about tears 
of laughter and aching sides. Unforgettable are his interpre- 
tation of Harpo Marx, his mimicry of Rubinoff, and his per- 
formance of "Uncle Toms Cabin" in one scene. 

One naturally asked favors of Dan; he welcomed such re- 
quests and did his best for his friends. In looking back we fail 
to see how he found time to study, but his marks will compare 
favorably with any. Our years at the Cross were brightened 
immeasurably by association with him and we owe him a debt 
of gratitude that only our friendship can partly pay.

Here we present one of the State's most serious minded stu- 
dents. As a lover of the classic languages and of philosophy, 
Ed found a novel delight in application to his studies. The 
profs all counted on his ability to rescue the class when quizzes 
were in order. High marks rewarded him and his scholastic 
standing is an enviable one. 

Ed hails from a small town, hut his reception into the cos- 
mopolitan atmosphere was a spontaneous one. Although quiet 
by nature, he would often lose himself in the heat of an argu- 
ment and delight us with his forceful declaration that carried 
the weight of his personal convictions. 

Possessed of a nice sense of humor and unobtrusive manner, 
Ed won the respect and admiration of the class. We looked 
upon him as an authority on scholastic matters and we appreci- 
ated him for the fine type of fellow that he was.

Reliability and sincerity are the keynotes of this smiling 
youth's character. In his tour years lure on the hill Jerry has 
never been known to break his word or miss an appointment. 
This is a great deal to say o! our harassed and busy stage man- 
ager, buried in the numberless details connected with college 
dramatic productions. For Jerry is the unsung hero responsible 
tor the technical success of the numerous entertainments pre- 
sented during the past several years. No piece of work proved 
too difficult for this young man. The mysteries of all those 
light switches and swaying ropes in back-stage Fenwick were 
as an open book to him. Each rehearsal saw Jerry faithfully 
present, each cue found him alert and prepared. Of such stern 
stuff are all good stage managers moulded. 

To close without saying a word concerning Jerry's capabili- 
ties as a student would be grossly unjust. But the choice marks 
which graced his name at each quarter tell their own story. 
Proficient in all things, as a student, a technician, a moulder of 
strong and lasting friendships, the world surely holds a place 
for Jerry.

It's more than ordinarily difficulty to write a sketch of Jerry 
that will do justice to all the fine qualities he possesses, for he 
brought with him from Dorchester a self-effacing modesty that 
pooh poohs his own achievements and finds much more 
pleasure in telling of the successes of his friends. His career at 
Holy Cross has been marked by a quiet determination that was 
slow in receiving appreciation but which has finally come into 
its own. 

Jerry found his main outlet for extra-curricular energy with 
the founding of the Rifle Club. That group became his pet 
and hobby, and as an officer he devoted much of his time to 
insuring the success of its activities. His interest also extended 
to the Riding Club and the Scientific Society, both of which 
profited by his association with them. 

Simplicity and frankness have been characteristic of Jerry, 
and his innate steadiness has helped him make a successful 
progress. His dry humor and unceasing loyalty made him 
cherished as a friend.

Four years ol college lite at Holy Cross might seem to the 
uninformed reader a long, irksome period spent in deep study, 
hut in reality our time passed on the Hill was both brief and 
enjoyable due to the magic influence of such men as this mem- 
ber of the clan of Sheehan. For .is the name suggests he has 
been a true clansman of the "ould sod;" nor could there be 
found among us a stronger defender of Irish Romance and 

Shawn soared into prominence in our Junior year when his 
famous class ode won for him well deserved plaudits. Yet 
before this he was not unknown to us tor from the beginning 
his scholastic ability was exceptional. Besides this, as an active 
member and officer of the Knights of Columbus, he learned 
well both the lessons and practical applications of fraternity 

There are a hundred other qualities which make us quite 
proud of Shawn. A patient and untiring seeker after truth, 
an omnivorous devourer of knowledge, a generous dispenser 
of it after he had acquired it — as witness his noble and sacrific- 
ing labors in the instruction of his less fortunate classmates — 
a constant and reliable friend, a person of charm and tact, we 
are sure that Shawn faces the world of reality with all the char- 
acteristics which so aptly fit a man tor the attainment of the 
success which he so worthily deserves.

The college man of a few decades ago was a rowdy sophisti- 
cate of questionable intelligence. Colb has no shred of such 
qualities in his makeup. He is representative of the new gen- 
eration of college graduate — a compound of quiet sincerity, 
clean thinking and good nature. There is in him no ostenta- 
tion, no sham, but rather there is what other men admire — 
being one's self. 

For four years Colb studied well and hard, played vigorously 
and helped hold steady the course of class and club. His 
acquaintanceships of three years ago have become the substan- 
tial, wholesome friendships of today. He has spared himself 
not at all in his devotion to the welfare of others and in his 
loyalty to the class. 

Colb says he intends to teach. Judging from his attachment 
to the study of English and his success along those lines, his 
way should not be hard. If he merely maintains his present 
standard, he cannot fail to do himself honor.

Our first means ol distinguishing Ed from his fellow Smiths 
was the fact that he was the shortest member of the crew, hut 
it did not take long before his accomplishments as a class 
athlete had made him known to all of us. Into his small, wiry 
hody he has packed muscles that give him a surprising 
strength, as those who have met him on the football field can 
testify. Not only on the gridiron did Ed shine, but on the 
basketball court and the baseball diamond as well. Corridor 
teams had no more faithful player and very few more able. 

Restlessly active, Ed has kept himself continually busy, either 
in sports, study, societies or the complex operations of the 
Springfield Club. Ed, by the way, deserves a salute for his 
fine management of that club's Christmas dance; Springfield- 
ites have been talking of that affair ever since. There was no 
looking for activity when Ed came round; he brought with him 
all that was necessary to entertain a gathering. That is a 
partial explanation of the popularity that has been his for four

The handsome lad from Fitchburg is usually found in the 
center of a wildly arguing group. No matter the subject, Frank 
will argue with you anywhere and anytime, just for the sheer 
enjoyment of the thing. Consequently bull-sessions are his 
particular meat, and he shines in the flippant give-and-take that 
invariably characterizes them. 

Frank has changed his mind so often about boarding and 
commuting that we have many times been at a loss to figure 
out his whereabouts. One year he'd board here, and the next, 
he'd commute — causing no end of good-natured confusion. 
This year, though, he finally decided in favor of the midnight 
revels of staid old Fitchburg, and definitely joined the day- 
hopper ranks. He was missed, too, in those long hours of 
"chewing the fat"' in Loyola's rooms. 

Majoring in English, Frank made the course his special 
hobbv and wended his way noblv through all the mazes of 
English Literature, Composition and whatnot. He has emerged 
with a penchant for writing, as a veritable Newman, polished 
of diction. All of which has nothing to do with the fact that 
Frank is a smiling, good-hearted lad, with an abundance of 
spirit and energy.

To those who have associated with Frank, no extolling of his 
good qualities is needed. These people have had contact with 
him and being able to discern his many good points need no 
assistance from another in enumerating them, but to thoie of 
you who are now meeting Frank, for the first time, we are only 
too ready to come to the fore and introduce a good scout, an 
affable classmate, a loyal Iriend, and a man most considerate of 
the feelings and wants of others. 

For two years Frank has acted as Instrumental Manager of 
the Band and Philharmonic Orchestra. His multitudinous 
duties in the Musical Clubs were always carried out with 
unusual thoroughness. Frank also identified himself with the 
Sanctuary Society, first as a server and later as Assistant to the 
Master of Ceremonies. His ever readiness and preparedness 
tor service and co operation made him invaluable. 

Frank possesses that rare gift of making and holding friends. 
We think the secret of this lies in the fact that he himself is a 
faithful and true friend. In his kindly understanding we could 
always confide and his opinion on all matters we valued for 
its justness and sincerity. Moreover, Frank is an idealist and 
firmly believes that the best and noblest lives are those which 
are set toward only the highest aspirations and ideals.

Coming to the Cross with a high reputation as a versatile 
athlete, Fred forsook the athletic held for more serious en- 
deavors and devoted himself thoroughly and whole-heartedly to 
acquiring a college education. Though regretting his decision, 
we could not help but admire the spirit in which Fred went 
through four successful years without applauding stands and 
cheering spectators. 

He did manage to take part in several activities during our 
last two years and the work he did in these fields made us 
realize anew his intrinsic worth. The Rirle Club, the Outing 
Club and the Flistory Society found him a talented and faithful 
supporter. Dogged in his determination to make his way, 
Fred's efforts, persistent as they have been, have earned and 
received our respect.

"Nature has written a letter ol credit upon some men's faces 
which is honored wherever presented," Thackeray tells us. 
Such a letter of credit written on the characterful lineaments 
ol the countenance above has been honored for tour years at 
Holy Cross. 

Underneath George Sullivan's urbane and affable exterior 
we have found a keen insight into sham and pretense, an 
unflinching loyalty to his friendships and a rugged determina- 
tion to scale the heights. In his disposition were charmingly 
blended a youth! ul /.est for life and action and a manly devo- 
tion to the task at hand. Courteous and gracious though he 
was, flattery, cajolery and expediency could not move him 
when his deeply imbedded sensitivity to principle bade him 
stand his ground. 

He came into one's room lighting and refreshing it as if he 
were healthy weather with the contagious good cheer of his 
manner. His air ol savoir faire, his innate sense of the social 
amenities made him gracefully at home in all company. He 
had that intangible faculty men call a gift for friendship 
because he could see beyond his own interests and appreciate 
the strivings of others. Above all, he minced no words, 
clothed no truth, loved no falsehood. Forever associated in 
our minds with all things young, vigorous and in their prime, 
George Sullivan, the steadfast friend, will never grow old.

Through cares and worries that would set a less-composed 
lad to tearing his hair, Johnny wended a complacent and effi- 
cient way as manager of Capt. McEwan's football stalwarts. 
The honor of the post he wore lightly, but the responsibility 
he took with a deep seriousness that made his reign a success- 
ful one. When three years of laborious apprenticeship failed 
to take away Sully's enthusiasm for managership, then we know 
that all the trials of that position would fail to daunt him. 

A member of the business corps, Johnny was always on time 
with the laborious work-sheets, journals and ledgers. He be- 
lieved in getting his work done before beginning play, and the 
success that has been consequent on his practice of that belief 
only goes to show the soundness of Sully's theory. Restraint, 
sympathy and cooperation have marked all his dealings and 
our liking for him is but a natural result of knowing him as 
he is.

It was in our Freshman year that John's name first appeared 
in print, and even then it was in a favorable light, in gracing 
the honor roll. It has continued to do so consistently and regu- 
larly ever since. Even in Sophomore, when Sull now and then 
missed a class, (and for a good reason, too) he always managed 
to attain those coveted eighty-fives. But mere scholarship is 
among the least of the characteristics by which we shall remem- 
ber him. "Sull's" excellence lies in more eternal and more 
richly human qualities — in his genial friendliness, his ready 
smile, his staunch deep-rooted loyalty to his ideals, his school, 
and his friends. 

Many a morning have hastening "day-hops" been cheered by 
the timely appearance of Sull's Buick on Cambridge Street. And 
many are the demerit slips which have been avoided through 
Sull's speedy ascent of College Hill, his tonneau crowded with 
an assortment of students, books and fragrant pipes. Possessed 
with an unfailing good nature, a ready store of anecdotes, and 
a keen sense of the humorous side of life, Sull has succeeded in 
instilling a real spirit of good-fellowship into our college life.

Aiming at a rivalry with Roger Babson, et al., Bill enrolled 
as an embryo economist at the beginning or Junior year. There 
was no cheering, no fanfare of trumpets at his election, but now 
that he takes his leave there will be a gap hard to fill for Bill 
has found his place in the forward rank of that course. A 
characteristic thoroughness and a painstaking care brought Sull 
results in this field as in all the others he tried. 

Coming from our own South Worcester, Bill was one of 
our early guides on those freshman exploring expeditions. Since 
then he has taken his place as a go-between man par excellence 
and more than one phone number was coaxed from him after, 
we must admit, a long struggle. Looking beyond the present, 
Bill has chosen his goal and marches steadily towards it; losing 
him will be a source of more than temporary regret.

Being a very determined young man. Tarn usually gets what 
he goes after. No better example is Found than the college 
handball championship. Tony went alter it in Freshman year, 
improved but Failed to win it in Sophomore and Junior years, 
then came through with sensational play to win the champion- 
ship, with Joe Payton, this year. It's hard to stop patience and 
persistence like that, as we've learned after tour years of associ- 
ation and warm friendship with Tarn. 

The musical clubs and the debating societies both drew Ans 
and from him the ability that is his Hither as the skilled 
violinist or as the polished speaker, he was always the gentle- 
man restrained and urbane. Success will certainly come to 
Tarn in his undertakings, and it will be a success commensu- 
rate with his innate earnestness and spirit of endeavor, his 
talent for the practical, his logic for the truth!

Fresh from Boston College High, Ralph came to the Hill 
to earn his earliest distinction as the possessor of a heard that 
defied razors and caused wonderment on the part of pink- 
cheeked Frosh. Since that Ralph has done things that have 
really made him stand out as an organizer, director and hard 
worker in general. 

Crusader Council history during the past four years could be 
largely written about him. His efforts, more than those of 
any one else, have been responsible lor the growth in numbers 
and importance ol the college council. To the dramatic society 
he was likewise invaluable, while the track team would have 
been at sea without his managerial ability. 

Despite the time he has put on studies, Ralph has been able 
to be in the forefront of college activities and to conduct chat- 
sessions that lasted till the wee small hours. Applying himself 
to the tasks at hand, Ralph has made a record of achievement 
that he can well take pride in.

A heady, courageous quarter-miler, Boh brought into all his 
activities the qualities that made him a track man. For four 
years he performed with Bart Sullivan's charges, ranging from 
hurdling to the dashes, and covering himself with glory in 
Senior year as a member of the Purple relay team. 

Hard to discourage, filled with a buoyant optimism. Bob 
could smile at tribulations that would have broken a lesser man. 
He won his success as a trackman by conquering obstacles that 
at times seemed insurmountable to others, but which Hamilton 
safely passed. His whirlwind campaign of ticket selling for 
our Junior Prom was not only successful but marked Bob as a 
salesman extraordinary. 

Bob's sportsmanship was not limited to the cinders; it marked 
him everywhere. No virtue of his was more appreciated than 
his spirit of fair play. The grinning red-top has been our 
defender and ally through four years of broadcasting friendship, 
through days of labor and days of play. Mav he always remain 
so in what is to come!

A small lad with a wiry physique and a quick brain im- 
pressed himself on us as an intramural athlete in Freshman year. 
In those days when day-duckers were foreigners it took us a 
while even to learn his name, hut in a comparatively short time 
we were on the most intimate terms with Joe. There are few 
easier to win as a friend than Joe; his welcoming smile, his 
cordial greeting, his unfailing sympathy and his willingness to 
help all combine to make intimacy with him easy but more than 
ordinarily valuable. 

Joe's generosity to his frcinds is unceasing and invariably 
good-natured, whether it be in the case of cigarettes, lunch 
money, or the translation of an obscure passage before class. 
He gives without asking anything in return and has always 
been ready to lend his powerful support to a friend's cause. 
Small of body but big of heart, Joe has been among the most 
popular of the Worcesterites and of the class.

Ray entered into the gay life of Third O'Kane with a de- 
termined look ot diligence that soon drifted away in favor of 
a friendly, reach smile. Hire is where Ray's storv really begins. 
Even (Jreek grammar, Chemistr) Formulae and laws of Physics 
have yet to dim his congenial nature. Leaving the Hill now 
for further conquests at home or abroad, Kay has been sea- 
soned and matured by lour years' constant exercise of what is 
best in him. 

Ray chose athletics as his chiel extra-curricular activity, and 
intramural ball courts and baseball diamonds were his daily 
playgrounds. Yet the well-known and much-talked-of discus- 
sions in smoke-hlled rooms seldom found "Blondie ' absent. 
Bridge games likewise drew his attention, Ray being an en- 
thusiastic participant or a quiet, observant spectator. Here as 
well as in the classroom his genial disposition played an im- 
portant part in his popularity, and we are sure that as the 
educator in the classroom of students yet to be, it will aid him 
to the success that must be his.

Join believed in experimentation, tor the first two years he 
hoarded with his classmates. The third year he spent in study- 
ing at first hand the reactions ot the new crew ot Sophomores 
and his Senior year in giving to the juniors the benefits of his 
experience by residing with the second battalion of the foreign 
legion in Beaven. 

For breadth ol learning Tom holds the unofficial first 
honors. His course has included pre-med chemistry, the B.S. 
course, ultimately the Ph.B. and at last hearing Tom was 
slated to seek a LL.B., having studied them all he is the jack- 
of-all-trades and we can say without being overkind he was 
the master of them all. 

Time was taken out in his busy career to manifest a con- 
vincing ability in basketball, interclass football and in the 
intramural track meets. Stay around with Tom until he tin- 
ally starts to talk and you will find it worthwhile.

Not finding a sufficient outlet for his enthusiasm in the activ- 
ities of the Worcester Club, Hill ventured into the field of organ- 
ization hy forming the Brookfield Club and serving as its presi- 
dent. Few more hilarious organiations have there been at the 
Cross than this same club, with its daily meetings, its refusal 
to obey parliamentary rules, its recruiting of ineligible mem- 
bers and its general merriment. Through all the Brookfield 
Club's storms and calms Bill was a leader who possessed 
gravity and a sense of humor at the same time. 

Make no mistake about the intellectual ability of our talented 
Mickey. He went at studies in a way that was conscientious, 
businesslike and productive of results; he achieved his ambi- 
tions gracefully and without apparent effort. He took his 
friendships seriously and valued ours as highly as we did his.

In every class there are always a few fellows who remain in 
the background through their own accord, a few who modestly 
prefer to be sought rather than to seek. Jim was one of those 
unusual, unselfish members of such a group. From his broad 
expansive smile to an overflowing heart, Jim possessed every- 
thing that wins friends and holds them loyally. 

At home in the Royal Suite of Walsh, Mahoney and Zyntell, 
all Beaven gathered for social and scholastic reasons. Jim was 
the perfect host, the willing helper and the serious student. 
Matching his firm friendships are the fond recollections his 
friends have of him. Complementing his sterling qualities is 
the certain knowledge that these same characteristics have the 
world to win, just as we were won by them.

A dynamo ol restless nervous energy, Joe is always doing 
something and investing that something with a personality that 
is peculiarly his. An activity that attracted Joe drew every 
ounce of his support and profited tremendously from his thor- 
ough co-operation. As a cheer-leader in Senior year, Joe found 
an outlet quite suited to him, and he brought to the ranks of 
the megaphone wielders a spirit that was irresistible in its in- 
tensity and duration. He displayed the same spirit as a cross- 
country man, as an intramural athlete, and, more prosaically, 
as an efficient member of the Purple Key. 

Intense in everything, |oe gave to his friends a loyalty that 
was devoted and faithful, that sought no other appreciation hut 
friendship. He studied earnestly and long, making his college 
education a feat of mental as well as moral and physical prog- 
ress. We eagerly look forward to the days of success that will 
certainly be his in the world outside!

Bun began Freshman year as Ed Moriartv's roommate, so it 
happened that he was accepted into the select confraternity of 
the boys from the Paper City. With this began his close 
friendship with Ed. Even without those dominant qualities of 
sincerity and generosity which motivated his every action. Bun's 
sunny disposition alone would account for the fondness which 
existed between himself and each member of the class. 

It is his ambition to become, some day, a great lawyer and 
with an eye to this he has amassed a wealth of legal information. 
With this store of knowledge and his own ideals. Bunny 
often formed the center point of those many private, semi- 
academic disputations. A room, a handful of patient hearers 
and an amateur seminar was in the making. 

His frank and likeable nature will carry him far in his 
chosen field. May he always preserve those high ideals and 
that spirit of generosity which always characterized his activi- 
ties on the Hill.

Let the trumpets blare! Let the audience rise! Here comes 
the Emperor. Emperor Ward in all his radiant red glory. Em- 
peror of what? Emperor of all the lands peopled by baseball 
maniacs, philosophy difficulty proposers, repartee artists and 
exponents of the pun. Especially is he Emperor of the last. 
Jack is and has been the author of some of the most pitiable 
puns ever foisted on an innocent public. But this is by no 
means all of Ward of the Brooklyn Wards. When not occupied 
as Lord of Bull Sessions and Instructor of Students in the 
School of Wit, he has been a journalist, a debater, an athlete 
and a sponge cake tosser. A journalist as author of Inter- 
collegiate Hour for the Tomahawk^; a debater as a member of 
the Philomath and of prize debate teams; an athlete as a 
member of the Gobby Boys (football demons), of class football, 
baseball and golf teams; a spongecake tosser as a member of 
dance committees of proms and of the Metropolitan Club. 
Still this is not all. 

The above are mere deeds. He has qualities. Of unlimited 
and unquestioning generosity, of industry, of depth of char- 
acter, of being a sincere friend . . . etc., etc. All in all, he is 
a whole and wholesome gentleman — and can't lose.

Cross and Paul has carried on the tradition in a way that needs 
no apologies. Good taste has characterized his every action, 
good nature has been always his, good luck has been no 

Steady as a rock, Paul has represented solidity through the 
four years of the quest for truth and knowledge. Any task 
entrusted to his hands would be invariably done well. His 
method seemed effortless, but the result was always there. At 
first his dependability was a source of wonder to us more irre- 
sponsible souls and we marvelled, then learned to respect one 
who could do so much in so unostentatious a fashion. 

Conservative in all things, Paul was slow to adopt a novelty 
for its own sake. Its worth had to be proved before it could 
merit his acceptance, but once accepted it was his thoroughly 
and completely. Sophisticated without being cynical, cultured 
without being arrogant, Paul brought to us a friendship that 
was quiet, deep and sincere.

Lew marked everything he Couched with the stamp of a 
personality that was serious, subdued and inspiring. His essays 
for the Purple were soundly critical, purposeful and vigorous, 
genuine reflections ot a nature that tound satisfaction only in 
the more important things of life and that displayed maturity 
by its disavowal of the topical and the trivial. 

Decidedly energetic, Lew as not only a forceful writer, but 
an eager student, an able musician, an eloquent speaker, an 
interpreter of the classics and a budding historian. Contact 
with a tempting subject inspired him to hours of research, 
detailed study and satisfying evaluation, with the result that he 
possesses a culture more than superficial in its depth. 

Laying aside his more serious aspect, Lew could be a 
convivial companion, relishing verbal by-play and adopting wit 
as his weapon of repartee. A sense of values like Lew's needs 
little improvement; his maturity is not only apparent, but real 
and substantial.

Last, alphabetically, of the Worcesterites and hence the last 
representative of that group in the Patcher, Johnny, to be 
bromidic, is by no means the least. He has been an outstanding 
contribution to our ranks from the Heart of the Common- 
wealth by virtue of a personality that is unpretentiously 
attractive, an industry that seemed inexhaustible and an ability 
in intramural athletics that extended to almost every sport. 
The Worcester Club found him invaluable in helping arrange 
and manage their various social events; we, as a class, learned 
to appreciate his tact and efficiency when he served as a 
member of the Junior Prom Committee. 

Johnny possessed a vitality that colored all his endeavors and 
that made his enjoyment ol life thorough and sincere. A 
sympathetic understanding that invariably offered wise counsel 
made him the confidante of many and further proved his 
essential worth.

Gord's extra-curricular activities are confined mostly to track 
and it is needless to mention his achievements on the hoard 
and cinder paths. When a fast, reliable man was needed to 
complete the relay team this past season, he was dratted 
from his usual events — the sprints — and he soon justified his 

In addition to his prowess on the track, Gordon provided his 
classmates with an unceasing flow of entertainment. He inter- 
polated song and speech with some of the weirdest noises ever 
sounded by human voice. However, one is led to believe that 
these were originally invented as a means of arousing his 
roommate from his downy couch. Inhibitions have never 
worried Gordon. II he felt like shouting lustily, lustily did 
he shout. 

To sum up his character briefly a generous, good-natured 
disposition, with a carefree attitude that seems to belie his 
intense regard for the serious things of life, makes Gordon a 
classmate we shall sorely miss.

Tony hit many a high mark in studies, literary labors and 
extra-curricular work. His fine work as editor-in-chief of the 
Purple, in this past year, became a guiding influence in raising 
the college magazine to higher and more enthusiastic levels. 

It will not be his achievements in the literary fields of the 
Tomahawk^ and Puiple, nor the numerous other interests he 
undertook that will remain with Tony. Rather will he cherish 
the days when he was the bulwark of that mighty Dastard line 
that effectively smeared every onslaught of the Gobby Boys on 
the old soccer field; he will prefer to remember the nights in 
Second Loyala when the irresistible Emperor held mutinous 
court, or those days before the orals in Junior vear at Annis- 
quam. His face will light up when you remind him of the 
heroic acts of faithfulness performed as corridor caller in 
Alumni, when he would arouse himself from slumber, awake 
the corridor, and then jump into bed again — a mute testimony 
of his reliability and inherent dislike for rules. 

These will be Tony's fondest memories of college. But above 
all, they represent the field in which Tony majored — the culti- 
vation of friends. We have a strong suspicion that he found 
the inspiration for his ode to the Senior class in the friend- 
ships he won on the Hill. To know Tony is to be certain on 
this point.

Believing that effort and energy are the only means of 
achieving successful results, Pete has held that theory through 
four years on the Hill and has seen it thoroughly vindicated. 
He is the hrst to admit that he has put tremendous industry 
into all his work, hut his high ranking in the pre-med course- 
made it more than worth-while. 

The Czar's energy has not been limited to the curriculum. 
He has been a member of the (dee Club, a cross-country man, 
president ol the Lawrence Club, and one of the school's best 
handball artists. To this latter sport he devoted many an 
hour, giving to the game the same methodical study that won 
him results in other fields. 

His avowed intention to settle down, alter medical school, 
in the smallest ol small towns, oilers a revealing insight into 
his nature. Industrious and determined, Fete will earn his 
forthcoming success.

It is characteristic of Bill that, as soon as he had been elected 
to the editorship of the Patcher by the class, he pushed aside 
all other extra-curricular activities and devoted himself solely 
and thoroughly to the task entrusted him. The energy hours 
that he has spent slaving over proof-sheets, cuts and the other 
paraphernalia of editors would astound even one of the late- 
lamented Technocrats. 

Even those of us who knew Bill well during our underclass 
years have stopped to marvel at the huge amount of work he 
has done in the past year. We had known him as a brilliant 
student, a lyric poet of skill, a sparkling essayist, and a general 
good fellow, but his Patcher efforts revealed him as a thorough- 
going business man, a talented organizer and an inspiring 

His domestic advertising campaign roused more interest in 
this Patcher than in any previous one; his victory dance after 
the B. C. game was a tremendous success. This book is not 
only a memorial to the class of '33, but to the enthusiasm, 
energy and effort of the tireless Bill. It is a lasting tribute to 
one whom we cannot forget.

In our pleasant term of fleeting years at Holy Cross, the Cru- 
sader football teams boasted strong, delensive lines rather than 
scoring backhelds. For three seasons Jim Zyntell was the 
sturdiest, most consistent linesman on the Purple eleven. It 
was in his Sophomore year that he dashed in to block Boston 
College's desperate, last-minute kick, stopped the boot and 
recovered the ball to make the only score. 

As regular guard the following season, Zig was the fastest 
linesman on the field, breaking up plays, blocking enemy punts 
and out-racing the fleetest ends and tackles in running down 
kicks. His efforts won him high mention on all-Eastern 
elevens. This year again he formed an impregnable barrier 
when crouched at guard for long, hard bone-crushing periods. 
It seemed a pity that the team was so ill-fated that this veteran 
did not receive the full credit that he richly deserved. 

Whether watching him in football, or meeting him on the 
handball courts or sitting terror-stricken behind him on his 
scorching motorcycle, we have always expected Jim to do his 
best and do it consistently.

Raymond J. McNally 

The name and spirit ol Raymond J. McNally should always be remembered by Holy 
Cross. His loyalty, determination, his perseverance and courage have wound about his 
sad death a host oi glorious memories and heartfelt tributes. As the holder of the Richard 
Healy Scholarship he won in two years a most enviable record. As a member of the 
History Academy his energy and scholarship defied his physical suffering. To the many 
who loved and admired him the Class has its deepest sympathy to offer; to him who has 
left us it offers the stirring salute of a soldier from his heroic comrade. 

Richard D. Crane 

The first of our number to be taken from us was Richard D. Crane in Sophomore 
year. We are truly proud to have known this man. He was a sincere Catholic gentle- 
man, a staunch quiet friend, an industrious student, a sensitive and devoted musician. 

His four years at Westfield High School were filled with work on his beloved music, 
and during his Senior year he was both violin soloist and president of the school orchestra. 
When he came to Holy Cross he soon became part of the college orchestra, and it was his 
dearest wish eventually to become its concert master. 

Many times have we heard the strains of his violin through the door on Fourth 
Fenwick, and perhaps entered for a moment's chat. We have left rested in some intang- 
ible way by that quiet smile of his — at times faintly whimsical. We did not then guess that 
we should not be allowed its presence long. 

But Dick is with the angels. And to speak truth we cannot grudge him Heaven for 
lacking him at Holy Cross. It is just that we have missed the sound of the violin through 
the door and the sight of the quiet smile within.

The Junior 





The Junior Class History 

Edward A. Kennedy, '34 

"\T71TH the Prom as the focal point of all social activity, Junior year is still 
as light and carefree as of old, with Latin and Greek lost in the dim past, 
electives offering new fields of interest, and philosophy not being as time- 
filling as expected. Despite pressing social engagements, the Class of '34 
maintained its traditions by having its members outstanding on the athletic 
fields, in the debating halls, and in the dramatic, musical and literary activities 
of the college. 

Football claimed major interest during the fall months, with Charlie 
Reiss, Charlie Jarvis, Bart Harms, Gerald Griffin and Fred Drescher winning 
varsity letters. Johnny Horgan, Joe Farrelly, Jack Lyons and John Mulvey 
were valuable members of the varsity eleven and saw considerable service on 
the gridiron. At the close of the season, Charlie Reiss was elected to captain 
next year's Crusader aggregation, an honor richly deserved by the brilliant 
Baltimore wingman. Johnny Earls was named to the post of varsity football 
manager, with Bob Woods receiving the Freshman assignment. 

With the arrival of the winter track season, Al Morin began running some 
brilliant quarters as anchor man of Bart Sullivan's relay team. He transferred 
his speed to the cinders this spring, to be joined by other Junior trackmen. 
Reiss, Hanus and Drescher joined the weights squad, while Joe Mulready, Art 
Dobson, Tom Burke and Mike Cooney were other Juniors to dig their spikes 
in the turf. 

Big Joe Mulligan, with a year of varsity experience behind him, was a 
regular hurler with Jack Barry's baseball team. Red Horgan saw service both 
behind the plate and at first base. Eddie Farrell was another lad prominent 
in the baseball picture. 

Jim O'Shea was a sure starter with the tennis team and was expected to 
carry on his successes of 1932. Dick Hartigan was a fixture on the golf team. 
Other Juniors were making strong bids for both teams, with several expected 
to win starting berths. 

With pre-game rallies and other signs of noisy enthusiasm, the Juniors 
started on a highly successful year in intra-mural athletics by putting in the 
field three strong football teams. Captain O'Neill's Mugwumps, spurning 
equipment as effeminate and welcoming bloody noses and such, walked off 
with the school championship. First Beaven put a strong basketball team on 
the courts and ranked high when the final standings were announced. Hav- 
ing won the school baseball title last year, the juniors were optimistic about 
this year's chances and began practice before Easter, despite the chilly blasts. 

After three years of faithful service, Pete Kennedy was appointed editor- 
in-chief of The T omahaiv\. Ed O'Connell is serving as business manager of 

the weekly, while Bob Woods holds down the sports editor's chair. Tom 
Shea's "Pillar to Post" was a popular feature of the paper, and Joe Mulligan's 
weekly sports chat was highly entertaining. 

Junior names were familiar in the pages of The Purple, with Tom Shea, 
Ed Williams and Tom Carlin faithful contributors. Shea has been named 
editor-in-chief of the monthly for next year, and by way of preparation edited 
the May issue of the literary magazine. Elections for Patcher heads resulted 
in the choices of Ed Kennedy as editor and Walter O'Haire as business 

The Dramatic Society and the Playshop received the support and talent 
of the class. Among those treading the boards this year were Marty Healy, 
Joe Donelan, Al O'Connor, Johnny Quirk, Art Wallace and Tom Campbell, 
all of whom distinguished themselves in plays ranging from farce and melo- 
drama to "Hamlet." 

Frank O'Brien, Con Dwyer and Ed Hardman, known originally as the 
Beaven Balladeers, changed their title to that of Two Majors and a Minor, and 
made a number of radio appearances. They also did a fine job of entertaining 
at several football rallies and at the Senior Reception to the Freshmen. Tom 
Campbell and Jerry Hearn were crooners on the independent circuit. The 
musical clubs had the services of twenty-one Juniors, with Jack Dillon as vice- 
president of the organization and with Ted Keegan as maestro of the Purple 

Harry Kirwin did some magnificent work on the platform as a debater 
and orator, while numerous Junior were active in Philomath and B. J. F. The 
class was victorious over the Seniors in the annual prize debate, with Carl 
Graf, Paul Gilvary and Ed Moline doing their forensic best. Thus the Class 
of '34 still has an unblemished record in prize debating. 

Of course the year reached its climax in February with the Junior Prom. 
Fair damsels from all points of the compass poured into Worcester for a 
week-end of feverish activity, while gallant Junior swains did their gallantest 
by the chosen ones. Jim Bradley picked Ted Black to play the music for the 
Prom, and his soft melodies set the background for an evening free from care. 
All too soon the Prom, the tea dance and the week-end were over, vanished 
into memories that will live long. 

Three-fourths of the road traveled, Thirty-four waits eagerly for Senior 
year, justly proud of its accomplishments thus far and hopeful of even greater 
ones to come.

The Sophomore 








The Sophomore Class History 

John H. Driscoll, '35 

tt~\^7'ISE FOOLS," Francis V. Hanify designated the Sophomore class in 
his significant oration at the annual Faculty Banquet, and was ap- 
plauded thunderously by the assemblage for his spirited declamation. Under 
Benedict V. McGrath, the class has been led through one of the most trying 
years in a college course. "Benny" McGrath, the real spirit of the Sophomore 
class, is responsible for the concerted success that has advanced the class one 
year in time and immeasurably in their fellows' estimation. Daniel Deedy, 
who wields not only a whirling baton in the musical organizations, also con- 
trols an enviable position on the class roster. Dan is Vice-President, and James 
W. Carney is the Class Secretary. Distinguished for his scholarly application, 
writing, oratory, and executive ability as Sophomore Manager of the Musical 
Clubs, Carney's position has been securely established as an indispensable 
power in the Sophomore class. Thomas Kelley is both an athlete and a student 
and the Sophomores have chosen this enviable combination which bespeaks 
Kelley's ability as Class Treasurer. Scholars, writers, orators, musicians, ath- 
letes — thus the class itself is mightily reflected in its class officers. 

The football season may have been distracting enough, but one fortunate 
and positive fact stood out clearly. The team was very nearly composed of 
Sophomores alone. Led by Jim Moran and Buzz Harvey, Tony Morandos, 
Ed Britt, Jack O'Connor, Charles Avery, Paul Brogan, Dan Herlihy, Zev 
Graham, Tom Kelley, Short Delaney, Andy Riccardi, Robert O'Brien, Tony 
Sienkiewicz, Bill Blanchfield, Tom Callan, Bill Halloran, and Clem McCann, 
the Crusaders presented a comforting array of Sophomores in the line-ups. 
Likewise, Jack Barry recognized the worth of Sophomore ability on Fitton 
Field's historic diamond. There were Ed Britt, Buzz Harvey, Bill Sline, Tom 
O'Connor, Leo Cannon, Ed Moriarty, Bill Halloran, Doc Couillard, and Dan 
Herlihy. In track, the Sophomores again manifested a position of enviable 
security in the persons of Tim Ring, the quarter-miler; Henry Hay ward, the 
880-man; Ed Kenny, the two-miler; Charles P. Garrity, running the 880; 
Burke, throwing the javelin and then running the two-miler, waiting for it to 
fall, while Tom Webber and Jim O'Toole paced out thrilling and fast 440's. 
The Sophomore class is a great power and factor in Holy Cross athletics. 

The minor sports claim the usual crowd of enthusiastic, and particularly 
responsive to the intra-mural call are members of the Sophomore class. Dick 
Callanan, Rudy Bacher, Jack Roche, Carroll Sullivan and Bud Richardson are 
frequently holding the spotlight in the tank; Jack Shortill burnt up the hand- 
ball courts, while the golf team was made up of a host of excellent Sophomore 
golfers, Bill Donnelly, Frank Doyle, Phil Fahy, assisted by Dan Shea and Jim 
Ryan. In the Outing Club, among other Sophomore enthusiasts existed mod- 
estly but significantly enough one of the outstanding skiers at Holy Cross — 
Carroll Sullivan. In the warm breezes of pleasant weather, down on the 
tennis courts, Sophomore talent flashed brilliantly with the raquets of John 
Costello and William J. Hughes. 

The debating societies were marked by the activities of a host of Sopho- 
more orators, Frank Hanify, Jim Carney, Ed Sugrue, Jim Ryan, Walter Downs, 
Rudy Bacher, Raoul Vezina, George De Prizio, Frank Garvey, Dan Sullivan, 
Hugh McGettigan, Bob Clair and Jim Desmond. The Dramatic Society 
heralded forth outstanding talent among the men of '35. In "Hamlet," Frank 
Carberry, James Graham, George De Prizio, William Hughes, Walter Harkins, 
Jerome Linehan, Albert Barber, Philip Byrne, George Bergin, William Burke, 
William Donoghue, Paul Brogan, George Couillard, Francis Keaney, Francis 
McGuigan, James Moran and John H. Driscoll paced the same boards stalked 
by Walter Hampden and swept by Ethel Barrymore — at the Plymouth The- 
atre. The Play Shop organization was made up to a marked extent of 
Sophomores. In the Sodality, the high position of Secretary is filled by a 
Sophomore, Jerome Linehan, while the various committees flourished under 
Sophomore leadership and capable efforts. 

The Holy Cross Purple, issued each month with a variety of compositions, 
among which were some offerings of Benedict V. McGrath and John Haley 
Driscoll, who wrote for the magazine consistently. William Read conducted 
the athletic department of The Purple, while John H. Driscoll edited the 
current literature section, entitled "The Moon of Books." The Sophomore 
contributors for the year wrote excellently and with indications of untold 
talent in the personages of James Carney, James Preston, John Galvin, Daniel 
Meenan, Fred Huss, and Edward McCormick. Hugh McGettigan handled 
the business department of The Purple and exhibited unmistakable signs of 
worth as a future financial manager of publications at Holy Cross. The Tom- 
ahawk^ presented the following Sophomores on their masthead: James Carney, 
James Desmond, Charles Donnelly, George De Prizio, Walter Downs, James 
Earley, William Fenton, Francis Garvey, Francis Hanify, Lawrence Kearns, 
Daniel Meenan, Everett Mack, John Sweeney, Francis Logan, William Read, 
Robert Courtney, Thomas Gilligan, and Charles Fity. 

Along scholarly lines of study, the History Society enrolled on its records 
James Carney, John Driscoll, Thomas Gilligan, John Shortill, and John Wil- 
braham. The Greek Academy contained on its roster several active partici- 
pant Sophomores, James Carney, John Shortill, Francis McGuigan, Michael 
Meehan, and Raoul Vezina. 

The Musical Clubs presented two outstanding musicians, Francis Mc- 
Guigan and George Brennan, one a genius of the keyboard, the other "a master 
of the xylophone." The Glee Club consisted of several Sophomores in their 
diessy array: John Driscoll, William Fenton, Edward McCormick, George 
DePrizio, Joseph Morgan, Gabriel Smith, Edward Sugrue, John Dunn, David 
Hawthorne, Lawrence Kearns, Thomas McDermott, Joseph Wojdylak, John 
Hays, and John Wilbraham. The Philharmonic Orchestra includes in the 
creators of its swelling crescendos, Richard Grogan, Charles Bailey-Gates, 
Thomas O'Keefe, Steven Olechnowich, Lawrence Riley, Edmund Sciullo, 
Richard P. Callanan, William J. Hughes, Walter Harkins, Donald White, and 
Robert Dawe. The position of Secretary of this incomparable organization is 
fulfilled by a Sophomore, William J. Hughes, while James Carney acted as 
Sophomore manager of the clubs, and the publicity department of the society 
was taken care of admirably by George De Prizio.

The Freshman 







The Freshman Class History 

Robert C. Graham, 36 

PHE fledglings have conquered! They have successfully completed their 
first year as sons of Holy Cross and, under their leaders, feel confident of 
further successes and conquests in the following years, until they, too, stand 
with the respected Seniors, leaders of the school. It was with awe and hushed 
respect that these members of the Class of 1936 moved through the venerable 
corridors and halls of O'Kane and Fenwick, last September, for they realized 
that it was their duty to uphold the sacred traditions given birth therein years 
ago. Rev. John F. Cox, S.J., continued his post as Dean of Freshmen this 
year, and Edward B. Hanify, 33, was the man who led the Freshmen through 
their first semester. Ed fulfilled the capacity of Senior Advisor admirably, 
and much thanks goes to him from his charges. 

Classes soon began to gather stride and before long the scholastic year 
was in full swing. It was then that the Freshmen began to venture into the 
extra-curricular activities. Athletics, literary, and forensic groups began to 
add the names of Freshmen to their rosters. In football, the Frosh completed 
an exemplary season, the most remarkable feat of which was the tying of St. 
John's of Danvers, Massachusetts, who last year conquered the Freshmen. The 
stars of the '36 gridiron were Captain John Woods, McNichols, Joe and Edward 
Murphy, Bartlett, Lingua, Morris, Cusick, Hobin, Vituilo, Hoar, Flanagan, 
Sharkey, McQuillan, Brabazon, Karpowich, McDonald, O'Neil, Cailler and 
Lavigne. On the basketball court, under the direction of James Nicholson. 33, 
the Frosh defeated such contingents as Providence Freshmen, Assumption Col- 
lege, Dean Academy, New England School of Accounting, and others. The 
cagers who showed up well during the season were Bartlett, the Kenneally 
twins, Lou Nicholson, Dempsey, Dowd, Gilligan and Tom O'Neil. The Fresh- 
men in the relay-quartet were feared by all opponents. The more prominent 
of the tracksters were the Murphys, Casey, Fanning, Dykas and Janiac. Now as 
spring has come and we go to press, we hear the ominous sound of Freshmen 
bats cracking in the cage, and are ready for a banner season on the diamond. 
Robert D. O'Connor, '36, managed, with the moderators, the Frosh intra- 

Those extra-curricular activities making up the literary part of the college, 
welcomed to their respective hearts many Freshmen. On The Purple staff was 
the name of Michael O. Driscoll, while Francis Smith and Paul Marchese 
made ready to move into their jobs as editors next fall. Driscoll will then edit 
the "Moon of Books." Edmond Benard aptly handled the "Cross Campus" 
column in The Tomahawk^, and among the other Freshman aspirants to posi- 
tions on this publication were the names of Kearney, O'Boyle, Marchese, 
Driscoll, Boner, Smith, MacCarthy, O'Neil, and Foren. Robert Graham was 
chosen Patcher editor for the Class of 1936. 

On the rostrum of the debating hall, during the past year, stood Edmond 
Benard as President of the Society, assisted by Michael Connelly and Richard 
Burner as Vice-President and Treasurer, respectively. Justin MacCarthy, 
Joseph McGovern, Francis Smith, John O'Boyle, Robert O'Connor, Paul Mar- 
chese, William Finn, Paul Neelon, Michael Driscoll, and John Liston were 
among the debaters to appear before the house during the year. Mr. St. John, 
S.J., acted as Moderator of the Society. 

When the curtain coiled its way upward on January seventeenth to reveal 
the scenes of Shakespeare's "Hamlet," Paul B. Neelon, 36, was seen musing 
and soliloquizing in Barrymore fashion as the title-holder. As "Hamlet," Paul 
Neelon was acclaimed "extra-ordinary," and was personally congratulated on 
his appearance by Doctor Frederick Paulding, a "Hamlet" of the past. Among 
the leaders in Neelon's supporting cast were Raymond McEnerny as "Ophelia," 
Daniel McNamee as "Horatio," John B. Gannon as "Gertrude," and many 
extras in the persons of Cox, Smith, Driscoll, Kearney, Boner, Thaney, 
O'Boyle, Phaneuf, Reilly, and O'Connor. To enumerate the enthusiastic 
members of the Play Shop would require too much space, yet at least twenty- 
five per cent of that organization consisted of Freshmen. 

The History and Greek Academies had their quota of Freshmen, to say 
nothing of such organizations as the Outing Club and Rifle Club. The Sodal- 
ity and Acolythical groups also boasted of many Freshmen. 

The class elections held in January revealed the popularity of Joseph E. 
Gallagher, as it was he who was chosen President. Hailing from Milford, 
Massachusetts, Gallagher fittingly and appropriately fulfilled his duties as the 
leader of the Freshman class. John Gleason was the Vice-President while 
Justin MacCarthy and Edwin Murphy were Secretary and Treasurer, respec- 
tively. Just before Lent, the Freshmen repaired to the ballroom of the Ban- 
croft and held their banquet. At this fete, Robert Graham acted as toastmaster, 
Edmond Benard as orator, Joseph Gallagher as presiding officer, Paul Mar- 
chese as odist, while Edwin Murphy and Leon Dykes, accompanied by J. 
Edward Bouvier, the Holy Cross music master, lent their vocal talents to the 
evening's entertainment. The "Crusader" orchestra, featuring Joseph Phaneuf, 
'36, presented arrangements of exceptional worth. 

The dawn has come. The squire rises from his knees before the holy 
altar on which rests his helmet and lances. The vigil is over. His steed is ready 
at the gate and, armed with the valor and inspiration of his companions, the 
new Crusader is ready to sally forth with a Purple Cross emblazoned on his 
shield, and a white plume waving from his helmet. Hail, Class of 1936!

Making its initial appearance a thing of some moment, because of a 
substantial change in size and a general color scheme of decidedly lighter 
and more artistic hue than that of years previous, the Purple made its 
formal debut for the literary year in October. 

Although deprived of the capable assistance of J. Andrew Burke and 
Walter Greene, both of '32, the issue was a highly presentable one. 
"The Irish Revival in Ireland," by William T. Cosgrave, K.G.C., LL.D., 
first president of the Irish Free State, was destined to be one of the out 
standing articles of the year. 

Daniel C. Meenan, '35, proved of special interested in a publication 
of his impressions of Percy L. Crosby, creator of the well-known 
"Skippy" of the comic sections. Meenan's essay was the result of a 
personal interview with the author. 

Shortly after the first few issues went to press, we noted several 
changes listed among the names of those on the mast-head. It was a 
case of "survival of the fittest." Francis P. Cronin, '33, yielded the 
"Under the Rose" column in favor of Harry B. Furav, also of the senior 
class. "Round Table" was taken over by William J. Read, '35. This 
section of the magazine had previously been run jointly by J. Frank 
Morris, '33, and John T. Quirk, '34. 

Governing Board of Editors — O'Gorman, Woods (Editor-in-Chief), Keating, Dwight. 



To the rather small numher of Associate Editors were added the 
names of Raymond J. Fitzpatrick. '33; Edward J. Hidalgo, '33; Edward 
B. Hanify, '33; John F. Regan, '33; and Michael O. Driscoll, the first 
man of the Frosh to make the literary grade. 

These new literateurs, for the most part comparatively uninitiated in 
Purple traditions, quickly made their presence felt. Fitzpatrick did 
several nicely handled short stories; while Furay contributed one of the 
best poems of the year, "The Ivy, the Heather, and I." 

The qualifications of Hanify and Hidalgo need no introduction. The 
former's oration at the annual senior class banquet was printed in the 
February issue, although such has not been the custom of the Purple in 
previous years. 

Our genial editor, Anthony S. Woods, besides turning out monthly his 
poetic musings on the external world about us, made it a point to carry 
on another innovation begun in '32: that of "writing up" the several 
contributors to each particular issue. In connection with his personal 
literary endeavors, we might mention an essay that brought him much 
favorable comment, "Stronger Wine and Madder Music." 

There was a continual influx of very superior poetry into the "coffers" 
of the magazine throughout the year. A substantial part of this was 
due to the efforts of John T. Dvvight, 3i, and Michael O. Driscoll. 
"Mandarin Reflecting" and "The Forked Path" were but samples of the 
depth of thought that the poetry editor was capable of probing; while 
Driscoll's "Men of Rain" was perhaps the most highly imaginative piece 
of the entire year. 

Robert Seton O'Neill was the cause of much humorous enjoyment 
with his "Curses, Jack Dalton!" a somewhat lengthy reminiscence that 
the old days of "melerdramer" were not so bad after all. In the same 
issue with O'Neill's article, February, J. Frank Morris presented the 
school year up to this point in panoramic revue entitled "Sand in a 
Glass." Morris was the school's acknowledged peer at this type of work. 

Throughout the whole term "Bill" Keating's poetry was very pleas- 
antly noticeable, as was that of another Senior, Richard J. McCarthy. 
Thomas A. Shea, '34, author of "The Sun Archer" and a great number 
of maturely done verses, received the honor of taking over the duties of 
"Tony" Woods as editor of the Purple. 

In connection with the literary work going on in the school, Holy 
Cross became a member of the newly reorganized Literary Association 
of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. Thomas Shea was once again hon- 
ored in being elected editor of this organization.

Without fear of contradiction, we may truthfully say that the school- 
year 1932-1933 was productive of some of the finest Toinahaw\ issues 
ever to be published. There was, of course, a reason for this success, 
which reason was due, in great measure, to the competent co-operation 
of a well-disciplined staff. 

With Edward J. Hidalgo as editor-in-chief, the administrative diffi- 
culties that seem destined to crop up each succeeding year were sur- 
mounted with a minimum loss of "newspaper energy." John Joy, in his 
managerial capacity, made it a special point to have all articles and mis- 
cellaneous contributions turned in at the proper hour; while Jack Regan 
and his colleague, Louis Lynch, spared themselves not a little in keeping 
doggedly on the heels of a score of potential Brisbanes. 

Concise, rather light editorials characterized the efforts of the board 
under Edward Hanify's chairmanship. This new stvle of composing 
was an attempt on the part of board members to get away from the 
rather ponderously written type of thought which was a distinct feature

Second Row — O'Neil, Leddy, Cahill, Ward, Cronan, Woods, Fitzpatrick, Kennedy, McCarthy. 



of the editorial page in previous Tomahawks. It was, also, the direct 
of an "editorial policy" conceived at the beginning of the term. This 
"policy" emphasized the need of several short, pithy articles to be writ- 
ten as a means of influencing opinion on outstanding questions of the 
school year. 

In mentioning the outstanding factors that carried the paper so suc- 
cessfully along from September until the middle of February, it is essen- 
tial to remember the untiring work of " Charlie" Callahan as business 
manager, and also that of J. Frank Morris who covered the majority of 
the larger sports events. 

More pictures, than ever before, perhaps, appeared in the weekly issue 
each Tuesday night. An innovation that served a practical purpose for 
the reader was the introduction of bold-faced type into both the editorial 
page and several of the columns. Besides rendering the printed matter 
more legible, this new style of setting also enhanced the general appear- 
ance of the paper. 

In mid-January the annual banquet was held at the Lobster Garden. 
Alter the customary speeches by the retiring editors, interspersed by the 
witty remarks of two past-editors, Leonard Bertsch and Nicholas Healey, 
the new staff was appointed. Peter J. Kennedy, '34, was appointed to 
succeeed Hidalgo as editor-in-chief. 

We might add that Thomas Shea, '34, editor of the Purple for next 
vcar, conducted one of the best and most original columns in the 
Tomahaw\, "Pillar to Post." It was, nevertheless, equalled in wit and 
humor by Robert S. O'Neill's "Granted," in which column many of 
the fantastic happenings taking place on the Hill were revealed in a 
Winchellian manner. 

The Promhaw\ put in its colorful appearance the day previous to the 
one set tor the junior social event. The issue was supervised jointly by 
Hidalgo and Joy, editor-in-chief and managing editor, respecthely, of 
the outgoing board. Sales for the paper reached a high water mark, 
with practically all of the third year men "plunging" to the extent of 
purchasing two or three copies per person. 

This was the final bow of the senior staff as administrators of the 
news organ, and it was with a feeling of a "task well done" that Hi- 
dalgo, Regan, McGarry, Ward and others made their adieux to the 
reading public. It was a year of progressive achievement in all depart- 
ments, with a resultant satisfaction of faculty, staff, and general student-

Philomathic Debating Society 

This year has closed upon one of the most memorable seasons the Philomath Debating 
Society has ever enjoyed. Those essential factors, without which no organization can 
prosper — attendance, enthusiasm, and action — were never in the least found wanting. 
Such a circumstance, no doubt, was in great measure due to the intelligent and challenging 
selection of questions which the gravity of present conditions made so necessary. Numer- 
ous projects, theories, and remedies dealing with current world problems were cast into the 
melting-pot of ideas, where convictions were engendered and made ready for oral 

It cannot go without mention that over all the Society's meetings was the competent 
and sagacious leadership of its President, Edward B. Hanify. "Ed," as well as being a 
scholar of eminent distinction, is an orator of equally surpassing merit. He was, in fact, 
voted the most outstanding speaker of the class by his fellow-seniors. Few, if any, would 
have denied him the right to his so well-earned office. 

No small credit is due, however, to the President's co-officers: Peter J. Kennedy, '34, 
Vice-President: and Edwin G. Moline, '34, Secretary. It was through their efforts, together 
with those of the Society Moderator, Mr. John P. Sullivan, S.J., that most of the organiza- 
tion's progressive activity was effected. 

It was from these men and their associates that the roster of the Lecture Teams, the 
newest debating organization on the Hill, was formed. 

To keep interest at a white heat, there was established this year the system of pairing 
off individual members for floor discussion on the same nights for which society debates 
were scheduled. Thus, attention on the part of the audience was not permitted to lag after 
the formal argumentation had been completed. 

Edward J. Hidalgo, '33; Raymond J. Leddy, '33; Charles S. Horgan, Jr., '33; J. Frank 
Morris, '33; John T. McCarthy, '33; were among the prominent Senior members of the 
Philomath who assumed active part in these and other discussions. Underclassmen 
included: Harry W. Kirwin, '34; Frederick L. Moriarty, '34; Philip C. Macken, '34; 
Francis V. Hanify, '35; James R. Desmond, '35. 




B. J. F. Debating Society 

Like her sister society, the Philomath, the B. J. F. debating organization also enjoyed 
a most active and educational season. With such energetic members as Edward O'Brien, 
Francis Costigan, Albert Currier and others frequently taking the floor in self-assertion, 
no meeting was permitted to lag. 

The first formal "get-together" of the year was held on the night of October 4th. 
Plans were discussed for the coming season, and Matthew J. Ashe, President of the Society, 
outlined the club's policy. In line with this policy, only those were to be assigned certain 
questions who had an interest in these same, thus eliminating a great amount of unin- 
spired labor on the part of the debaters. 

A suggestion for a revisal of the organization's constitution was suggested, and Thomas 
A. Kennedy, '33, was made chairman of the group that was to have charge of this function. 

Important questions that were subject to discussion on various Tuesday nights 
throughout the winter months and into Spring were: questions pertaining to the ap- 
proaching political election: social insurance; and the recognition of the Russian Soviet 
government by the United States. 

An innovation made by President Ashe proved of great aid in sustaining interest. It 
was the introduction of the Oregon system of debating. This particular type of discussion 
is of the nature of a cross-examination, and was instrumental in giving a needed amount 
of practical experience to those who will further their education in the various law schools. 

One of the most important debates of the year was that on the question of a provision 
by the government for the use of 15° of radio channels for the purposes of education. 
On the affirmative side, the ultimate victors, were Thomas Daly, 34, and John Scanlan, 
'35; while John Hennessey, '35, and Walter Downes, '35, constituted the members of the 
losing team. 

An Open Forum was introduced late in the year, and proved so successful that a 
policy for holding a number of such type of discussions was adopted. Read, '35; Quirk, 
'34; Bradley, '34; Hoyt, '34 distinguished themselves in this line. 

Listed among the active members of the club, besides those mentioned, were: Raoul 
Yezin. '35; Lawrence Kearns, '35; Gabriel Smith, '35; Richard McCarthy, 'M; John Shea. 
'34; Martin Earls, '33. 




Varsity Debating 

With well-earned victories, over their chief forensic rivals, Harvard, University of 
Dayton, and St. Thomas', of Pennsylvania; the Varsity Debating Team had a brilliant 
season. The main cogs in the oratorical machine, Hanify, Hidalgo, Leddy, and McCarthy, 
all had ample opportunity to prove their worth. 

The year was opened with the St. Thomas encounter staged in Fenwick Hall, on the 
night of February 12. Richard J. McCarthy, '33; Raymond J. Leddy, '33; Edward J. 
Hidalgo, '33 successfully upheld the negative side of the question, Resolved: that the 
United States should agree to cancellation of all inter-allied war debts. This proposition 
had been decided upon as the national intercollegiate question of the year. 

Their intellectual appetites whetted somewhat by this contest, the team was, never- 
theless, well prepared for their next opponent, University of Dayton, hailing from the 
town of the same name in Ohio. The question was the same as that of the previous 
debate, and Holy Cross again defended the negative side. This time the team was com- 
posed of Edward B. Hanify, President of the Philomath, and Richard McCarthy, both of 
the senior class. 

Cowden and Huden represented the visitors. 

In the latter part of March, what is generally looked upon as the "big" debate of the 
year took place with Harvard, an old rival of many fields. Recognition of the Russian 
government was the subject for the evening, and Fenwick Hall was filled to overflowing. 
Donald Sullivan, '33; Richard Amberg, '34; and Seymour Beyser, '33 represented the 
Cambridge University. It was a keen clash of mental agility throughout, but in the end 
the judges awarded a verdict favoring the home team, made up this time by Hidalgo, 
Hanify, and Leddy. 

Thus far, the record: Three victories; no defeats. It was, then, with the feeling of a 
task well-done that President "Ed" Hanify and his cohorts looked ahead to the final contest 
of the season, that with Boston College — and a feeling of little or no regrets. 

Another aspect of debating, closely allied to varsity competition, was that of Inter- 
Class contests. In this field, the luniors vanquished the Seniors, while upholding the 
affirmative side of the question, Resolved: that legislation should be enacted to provide 
that fifteen per cent, of radio channels be made available for educational purposes. The 
prize was a cash award to the winning team of forty dollars. 

Juniors taking part were: Moline, Gilvary, Graf; while Horgan, Costigan, and Leddy 
composed the senior contingent. 

In the debate between the first and second-year men, the last named emerged on top. 
The Freshmen included: Gallagher, McGovern, Benard. Sullivan, Desmond and Clare 
made up the Sophomore team. 

McCarthy, Hidalgo, Hanify, Kirwin, Leddy 

The Lecture Teams 

Thanks to its Moderator, the Philomath saw an innovation which was attended with 
a large measure of success: Lecture-debating, as it was called, or, the Lecture Teams. 
This form of debate was introduced for the first time on a large scale. 

Many of these teams were extended the privilege of addressing numerous social organ- 
izations throughout New England. Their chief purpose was the discussion of timely 
political and economic questions in a popular manner, that is, with the intention of 
appealing to the average person. 

Through the medium of these lectures, a splendid opportunity for practice in public 
speaking was afforded those men who are eliminated from Varsity Intercollegiate Debates, 
because of insufficient experience. 

When Senior members comprised the teams, questions whose solutions are radicated 
in basic ethical principles were selected as topics of discussion. Thus, the last-year men 
were permitted to profitably utilize their class matter. 

The general proposition for the debates was: Resolved, that the state should compel 
the employer to pay the employee a living wage. This subject was treated pro and con 
in various cities throughout Massachusetts and her sister states. 

Harry W. Kirwin, '34, was honorary chairman at the majority of these functions. 
The number of members who took active part in the lectures was large. Charles S. 
Horgan, '33; Raymond G. Leddy, '33; J. Frank Morris, '33; Edward ]. Hidalgo, '33; John 
T. McCarthy, 33 constituted the Senior contingent, while among the underclassmen were 
listed, Edwin G. Moline, '34; Carl f. Graf, '34; Peter J. Kennedy, '34; Philip C. Macken, 
'34; Francis V. Hanify, '35; James R. Desmond, '35; Daniel F. Sullivan, '35; Robert L. 
Clare, '35; Robert L. Martin, '35; John J. Scanlan, '35; Paul D. J. Gilvary, '34. 

Included in the number of organizations addressed were: Knights of Columbus, 
North Brookfield, Mass.; Elks of Worcester; Bunker Hill Council, K. of C Charleston, 
Mass.; Employers' Liability Insurance Corp., Boston, Mass.; Newport Council, K. of C, 
Newport, R. I.; Portland Council, K. of C, Portland, Me.; and Beverly Council, K. of C, 
Beverly, Mass.

Freshman Debating 

Attracting a great number of the first-year men, this debating organization began its 
active campaign in the early months of the school term by a selection of officers who 
would guide its destinies throughout 1932 and 1933. 

As a result of the elections, Edmond Benard of Springfield, Mass., was honored with 
the presidency; Michael Connolly became vice-president, while the office of secretary was 
filled by Richard Burner. An executive committee composed of F. William Gregory, 
Gordon Zubrod, and Joseph Gallagher was introduced into the society to manage business 

After the installation of the executive staff, actual debating was begun and continued 
along smoothly through the winter months, being brought to a most satisfactory climax 
when three representatives from the society met and defeated the Boston College Fresh- 
men in Worcester. 

The debate was held under the auspices of the local council of the Knights of Columbus, 
and was well-attended by the townspeople. As a result of the victory, the winning team, 
composed ot Justin McCarthy, Edmond Benard, and Joseph McGovern, was awarded a 
beautiful silver loving cup. 

Daniel McNamee, Frank Smith, and John Moriarty, delegates of the Freshman organ- 
ization, traveled to Boston to clash their own opinions with a picked team selected from 
the student-body of Boston University. In this match of mental agility, however, the tables 
were turned, and the Purple orators were forced to accept defeat. Not without a valiant 
stand, it must be mentioned. 

The society itself harbored a group of "radicals," who pressed their cause under the 
able guidance of Joseph McGovern, and many of the meetings threatened to reach a 
riotous climax had it not been for the timely interference of the faculty moderator, Mr. St. 
John, S.J. 

Paul Neelon, John O'Boyle, and Michael Driscoll were also prominent in several of 
the weekly floor discussions. On a particular occasion a party of members led by James 
Hackettt gave promise of ending a meeting with vehemence, as a result of their highly- 
wrought arguments. In spite of all, however, the season was completed without any 
casualties, and members of the society are looking forward to further forensic success at 
Holy Cross,

According to a tradition nearly as old as the Dramatic Society itselt, 
the members ot the organization presented as their annual Shakespearean 
offering, the master-tragedy "Hamlet." The cast was selected with care 
following close try-outs, and Paul B. Neelon, '36, was chosen to depict the 
melancholy Dane. 

Besides heing actors, the memhers of the Society contributed many one- 
act plays for production and the works ot Edward Duff, Thomas Shea and 
John Driscoll were presented in May, closing thereby, the dramatic season. 



On the evening of January 18th, on the stage of the Plymouth Theatre, 
the Holy Cross Players presented William Shakespeare's tragedy "Hamlet, 
Prince of Denmark." Under the direction of Rev. F. A. Gallagher, S.J., 
the Shakespearean band, after weeks of practice presented their effort to a 
packed house for the reward of one of the most appreciative manifestations 
of applause ever tendered such a production. 

Paul B. Neelon, '36, dark and sad in his "knighted color," swept into 
prominence as the melancholy prince of the Danes. His soliloquoys and 
repartee marked him as a consummate master of the Bard of the Avon. In 
startling reality his pre dieu scenes and his encounter with his parent's 
phantom were enacted. Daniel V. McNamee, '36, as Horatio, boon com- 
panion to the stricken prince, left an indelible name on the program. The 
difficult role of Polonius, was protrayed by Edward J. Hidalgo, '33, vice- 
president of the society. Ever wily and ever advising, Polonius as inter- 
preted by Hidalgo was one of the outstanding performances of the evening. 

Thomas J. O'Connell, '33, as King Claudius and John B. Gannon, '36, 
as the rulers of the kingdom together with Joseph P. Donelan, '34 and 
Raymond J. McEnerney, '36, as Laertes and Ophelia respectively completed 
the cast of the principals. The settings and the costumes lent the necessary 
touch to the situation so that when the lights flooded the stage in varied 
hues, and curtains billowed upward, one had no difficulty in imagining 
himself at the Court of Claudius, years ago.

One Act Play Society 

The members of the Dramatic Society had been fired with dramatic 
action previous to the Shakespearean production. A Playshop had been 
formed and three one-act plays afforded a very enjoyable evening in Fen- 
wick Hall during the month of November. The final efforts of the Play- 
shop were the staging of original one-act plays. Weekly meetings were 
held during the year and an added attraction at some of these meetings 
was had in the form of lectures by men prominent in this field and mem- 
bers of the Playshop. The program of the lectures is as follows: 

Lecture — Catholic Ideals in Drama Rev. Thomas B. Feeney, S.J. 

James M. Banie's Short Plays Anthony S. Woods, '33 

Three Playwrights — Nineteenth Century John F. Regan, '33 

Lecture — The Irish Theatre and the Abbey Players 

Rev. Terrence L. Connelly, S.J.

Lecture — False Dramatic Principles Rev. J. Gerard Mears, S.J. 

Modern American — Connelly, Kaufman, Kelly 

Thomas A. Shea, '34 

Pulitzer Prize Plays 

Blaise F. Scavullo, '33 

Modern American — Green McKaye, Rice 

John A. Matthews, Jr., '34 

Lecture — Othello and Current Plavs 


Frederick W. Paulding, Litt.D. 
Three Irish Playwrights Albert J. O'Connor, '34 

Lecture — King Lear Rev. Carol L. Bernhardt, S.J. 

Oberammergau Passion Play Rev. Robert Schwickerath, S.J. 

There has been a marked revival of interest in things of the theatre 
during the past year. The institution and success of the Playshop are 
indications of this fact. That this interest has not been ephemeral may be 
judged from the attendance at discussions, and from the artistic success of 
the efforts of the Playshop. It is not too much to say that the Playshop 
has been largely responsible for this new attitude. And if the ensuing years 
witness a continuation of the present enthusiastic endeavor and interest, 
it will be, in no small degree, due to the efforts of this organization.

The Philharmonic 

J. Edward Bouvier, M.A 

The first feature, and it is now a traditional one, of every 
program by our musical clubs, is the rendition of the stirring 
'Hoi-ah! Holy Cross!" Prof. Bouvier, co-composer of this work, 
strides briskly out upon the stage, mounts the conductor's plat- 
form, raises his baton, and with its descent the orchestra crashes 
into the opening strain of this now famous number. A few 
measures before the trio, the Glee Club marches out, quickly and 
precisely, and takes its position just in time to swing into the 
rhythmic bars of the chorus. The composition gradually builds 
up to a final ritardando and crescendo, its last notes, thrillingly 
prolonged by voice and instrument, being lost in the spontaneous 
burst of applause from across the footlights. Such is now the 
traditional opening of every Holy Cross concert. 

Since the time when the first group of Holy Cross musicians 
played in concert, there has been a constant progress in technique and musicianship in the 
work of Holy Cross instrumentalists. This years group is particularly well-balanced. 
The first and second violin sections offer us two splendid string choirs endowed with a 
brilliant and full-bodied tone in the most rapid staccato as well as in the smoothest and 
richest legato passages. At all times these sections, of major importance in any philhar- 
monic group, were capably led by Concertmaster "Dick" Grogan. The reed section, 
comprising clarinets, oboe, and saxophones is distinguished both in tone and technical 
proficiency. One of the finest sections of the group is the brass section. Our French 
horns are marked by an almost professional skill, while the trombones and trumpets are 
surpassing in richness and body of voice. Viola, flute, violincello, and bass viol are all 
outstanding in their always dependable performance of the very necessary inner harmony 
and obligato work. Frank McGuigan and "Tom" Grant at the two pianos were a tower 
of support. And last, but not least, we come to the percussion section, composed of tyin- 
pani, bass, snare, traps, bells, chimes and xylophone, all of which were in the very capable 
hands of "Bob" Daw and George Brennan. These men, always hard-working, were par- 
ticularly brilliant in the performance of the major concert works; rhythm was their chief 
concern and they never permitted it to lag or to become tedious. 


William J. Hughes, Secretary; Thomas F. McKcon, President; John A. Dillon, Vice-President . 


Since we are celebrating this year the anniversary of Victor Herbert, our orchestra 
elected to play selections from that American composer's tuneful "Mile. Modiste," and 
with tremendous success. Two of the climactic peaks in the performance of this work 
were "Bill" Hughes' pseudo-dramatic interpretation of "I Want What I Want When I 
Want It" on his famous trumpet, and "Larry" Carroll's luscious presentation of "Kiss Me 
Again" on his seemingly human trombone. Another sure-fire hit was George Brennan's 
sparkling performance of the joyous "Canadian Capers." Of equal excellence was his 
facile and lucid interpretation of the rhythmic finale to "William Tell." "Tim" Clifford 
and "Dick" McCarthy, members of the usually unsung and unhonored tribe of bass 
players, had their great hour in the rendition of Weber's famous "Overture to Oberon." 
Another high spot of every program was the scintillating piano duo of Frank McGuigan 
and "Tom" Grant which combined technical skill with judicious interpretation. Their 
"piece de resistance" was the brilliant octavo Hungarian March of Kowalski, "Salut a 
Pesth." "Bob" Daw, drummer, and "Dick" Callinan, oboist, came into their own in the 
performance of Ketelby's bizarre "In a Chinese Temple Garden." "Dan" Davis and "Ed" 
McClure, artists on the French horn, made much of their solo-work in "Die Scheme Gala- 
thea." "Ted" Keegan, clarinetist, and John Browe, flutist, combined in appealing har- 
mony in the shepherd music of "William Tell." And so, down through the entire list 
of members, we might go on enumerating individual and group excellences. 

An account of the virtues of our orchestra would be far from complete if it ignored the 
efficient and self-sacrificing labors of the managerial department. These are often the 
real "forgotten men." Hence it is that we wish to extend a word of hearty praise and 
appreciation to Senior Manager Frank Sullivan and his two very capable assistants, "Bill" 
Monagan and "Jim" Carney. Their very arduous tasks of "setting-up" and dismantling 
and transporting were essential to the success of every concert. The best we can say of 
these workers is that they did their work and did it well.

The Gl 


Recognized as one of the most outstanding musical organizations of the Eastern 
colleges, the Musical Clubs of Holy Cross enjoyed one of the most successful years in its 
history. Together with the Philharmonic Orchestra, the Glee Club presented their 
program in many of the leading cities of the East, and everywhere they were received with 
enthusiastic acclaim. Music critics heaped praises upon the Clubs and were most delighted 
with their radiant personality and masterful direction. 

To the man, who for the past decade, has directed the Musical Clubs of Holy Cross, 
must go the greatest portion of the credit for their achievements. Professor J. Edward 
Bouvier, A.M., brought the Musical Clubs from an organization of individual musicians 
to a concentrated group that sang and played with musical perfection and finesse. His 
radiant personality shines in difficult situations as well as pleasant occasions and his ever- 
present smile makes tedious and tiring rehearsals very pleasurable and happy. The 
Musical Clubs proudly claim Professor Bouvier as their director and wherever their 
program is presented praise and honor is bestowed upon him by appreciative audiences. 

The organization owes great appreciation to its Faculty Advisor, Rev. Fr. Joseph B. 
Connors, S.J., whose untiring efforts in the face of many difficulties made many a concert 
possible. Obstacles which to another might seem insurmountable were overcome by him 
and his great desire to do everything possible for the Club's success will be long 

The Glee Club included in its repertoire a wide variation of musical selections. 
Among the outstanding numbers were "Hallelujah Chorus" by Handel, "In the Time of 
Roses" by Reichardt, "March of the Toys" by Herbert; "Lullaby" by Brahms, "Man to 
Man" by Chiappo-Ibanez, "Hospodee Pomeclooy" by Lvovsky. 

The Varsity O uart et, composed of Joseph C. Payton, '33, first tenor, Arthur M. 
McEvoy, '34, second tenor, Leon Dykas, '36, first bass, and Edward G. Moline, '34, second 
bass, rendered selections on several of the programs and charmed their audiences by their 
musical ability Their singing of "Kentucky Babe" by Bartlett, "Forgotten" by Cowles, 
and "Secrets" by Smith was most enjoyable to all music lovers who heard them. The 
singing of Joseph C. Payton, '33, as soloist of the Clubs brought many words of praise 
and commendation from his listeners who were thrilled by his rendition oi "I Hear You 
Calling Me" and "One Alone." 

The musical season opened in Providence at the Biltmore Hotel. Next the Clubs 
appeared in Hartford at the Weaver High School. The annual concert in Springfield 
followed at the Springfield Auditorium. A pre-Lenten concert was given at Pittsfield, 
Mass., at the Hotel Wendel for the benefit of Shadowbrook, the Jesuit Novitiate at Lenox. 
The annual Fenwick Hall Concert was given on April 4th, and both the Faculty and 
stndent body attended. On Palm Sunday concerts were given at Weston College in the 
afternoon, and at Regis College in the evening. During the Easter vacation two concerts 

Arthur M. McEvoy 

Edward G. Moline Joseph C. Payton 

Leon I)\ 


were given, one in New Haven and the second in New York City. In New Haven the 
Albertus Magnus College Glee Club and the Holy Cross Musical Clubs presented a joint 
concert. The joint numbers, namely, the "Seraphic Song" and "Prayer of Thanksgiving" 
were received with great acclaim. In New York, the Holy Cross Clubs joined the Glee 
Club of the College of Mt. St. Vincent in presenting a most delightful concert. 

On April 30th, the Glee Club and Orchestra together with the Musical Clubs of 
Boston College presented a joint program at Jordan Hall, Boston. This annual concert 
provided the music lovers of Boston with an evening of enjoyable musical selections. The 
year was brought to a close on May 5th when the Clubs presented their last concert in 
the Ballroom of the Bancroft Hotel.

The Choir 

During the past year, the College Choir sung the Sacred music of the Church at the 
various services and devotions held in St. Joseph's Memorial Chapel. Rev. Fr. Joseph B. 
Connors, S.J., was Faculty Director and under his guidance the Choir met frequently for 
rehearsals. Joseph V. Dunn, '33, was Student Director and the managerial duties of the 
organization were handled hy John A. Dillon, '34. 

The organization was augmented by its tenor soloist, Joseph C. Payton, '33, whose 
pleasing voice delighted the listeners, and by a quartet consisting of Joseph C. Payton, '33, 
first tenor; Joseph V. Dunn, 33, second tenor; John E. Dunn, '35, first bass, and Thomas 
F. McKeon. '33, second bass. The quartet rendition of a cappella of Deus Ego Amo Te 
was a feature of the program. 

The Choir was accompanied on the organ by Frank E. Rooney, '33, whose playing 
deserves the highest praise. Not only did he assist the Choir, but also played at Mass each 
morning and at Evening Prayers. Frank has been Organist in the Chapel for the past 
three years and his renditions of church music have inspired his listeners. Whenever 
necessary, he was relieved by Francis P. McGuigan, '35, a splendid and most capable

The Band 

The Holy Cross Band was reorganized under the direction of the new Faculty 
Advisor, Rev. Fr. J. B. Connors, S.J. and the Musical Director, Mr. J. Edward Bouvier. 
Playing at the first two games with very little practice, the band, nevertheless, made credit- 
able showings. In their third appearance on Fitton Field at the Maine-H. C. game the 
performance of the forty-eight Crusaders was impressive and merited much praise and 
commendation. On Friday, October 21, the band left the Hill on its first trip, bound for 
New Brunswick, N. J. The performance of the band at the Rutgers-Holy Cross game 
was excellent. On the following Saturday, the band motored to Providence, where they 
played and marched at the never-to-be-forgotten Brown-Holy Cross game. Another success- 
ful day was written into the record of the band as they left the Harvard Stadium the fol- 
lowing Saturday. 

The next week-end found the band again in New York City. While the teams of 
Manhattan and Holy Cross sloshed around in the mud, the band played from beneath the 
sheltered grandstand, parading being impossible. In the finale of the football season, the 
annual clash between Holy Cross and Boston College, the band made its most colorful 
appearance. With three arrayed Crusaders, the band gave a magnificent performance in 
its final appearance on Fitton Field.

The Purple Crusaders 

An integral part ol every college entertainment program and a popular branch of the 
Musical Clubs, this year's Purple Crusaders have been acclaimed as one of the most colorlul 
dance bands in Crusader history. With Tid Keegan as leader, the band scored successes in 
all its appearances. 

Larry Carroll, senior trobonist and excellent vocalist, made many of the Crusaders' 
unique dance arrangements and transcriptions ol classical numbers. Ed Hidalgo, another 
senior, was a stellar saxophonist. 

The juniors furnished a group of able musicians in the persons of Ted Keegan, Art 
McEvoy, Tom Monahan and Paul Fleming, all of whom were instrumental in the band's 
success. A quintet of capable sophomores: Tom Tetreault, Bill Hughes, Walter Harkins, 
George Harkins, and Joe Phaneul, added their talents to complete the group. 

Besides their frequent appearances in Worcester, The Purple Crusaders played in a 
number of eastern cities, among them Providence, Hartford, Springfield, New York, Brock- 
ton and New Haven.

Aquinas Circle 


Frank Lovelock .... ...... President 

Stephen Costello ........ Vice-President 

Austin Maley ........... Secretary 

Rev. Bernard Shea, S.J. ... ...... Moderator 

With a membership of close to 100 seniors and with interest at a high pitch, the 
Aquinas Circle enjoyed a year of remarkable success. Offering an appeal to students of 
psychology, the club provided an excellent field for extra-curricular activity. 

Frank Lovelock, president of the philosophical group, worked untiringly for its suc- 
cess and his enthusiasm did more than a little to sustain interest in the organization. 
Steve Costello served as vice-president, while "Colonel" Maley acted as secretary. 

The first paper was read by Edward B. Hanity. His subject was "The Principle of 
Exclusive Natural Causation," and he led the discussion which followed. The next speaker 
was John Dwight, who discussed "Anthromorphism and the Scholastic Concept of God." 
Shawn Sheehan, speaking on "Man's Place in the Universe," was the next to address the 
group. Papers were read at succeeding meetings by Matthew Ashe, Frank Lovelock and 
Steve Costello. 

Rev. Bernard Shea, moderator of the club and professor of senior psychology, did 
much to make a success of the Circle's activity. By his willingness to aid in solving diffi- 
culties, his help in clearing obscure points, and his sacrifice of time he showed a sincere 
interest in the society of which he was faculty advisor.

Traditionally, the Scientific Society holds bi-weekly meetings for the purpose of dis- 
cussion of subjects in physics that could not be treated in the regular courses. Departing 
this year from the policies of the past, the Society inaugurated a series of bi-weekly labora- 
tory meetings during which the members, individually, pursued studies not covered in 
the regular laboratory work. Membership comprises honor students in physics in junior 
and senior years. Since the desire of the members was to study electricity in detail, the 
following experiments were performed: 

1. Measurement of the electrostatic charge on the electron. 

2. Determination of galvanometer sensitivity. 

3. Measurement of the horizontal component of the earth's magnetic field. 

4. Determination of the electrochemical equivalents of copper and silver. 

5. Determination of the characteristics of D. C. motors. 

6. Study of the photo-electric cell. 

7. Determination of electromotive force by means of the potentiometer. 

8. Measurement of self inductance of large coils. 

9. Measurement of characteristics of thermionic vacuum tubes. 
10. Calibration of an ammeter with the copper coulometer.

History Society 

In the spring of 1931 the History Academy was formed to provide something in the 
nature of a seminar for students desirous of pursuing independent historical study. As 
interest in this activity increased rapidly, the academy sanctioned an expansion of mem- 
bership to admit many other interested students. As a result the meetings of this organiza- 
tion have become an integral par of Holy Cross extra curricula activities. 

At the opening meeting of the 1932-1933 season, J. Frank Morris, '33, resigned his 
position as president, due to pressure of other activities. Harry W. Kirwin, '34, one of 
the society's organizers and its first president, was elected to fill the office. John T. Dvvight, 
33, and John H. Driscoll, '35, had previously been selected to fill the offices of vice- 
president and secretary, respectively. 

Rev. Patrick. J. Higgins, S.J., outlined an instructive and interesting program for the 
ensuing year. The succeeding meetings attested to the general interest of the student body 
and the constructive nature of the papers encouraged sound discussion and appreciative 

Opening with an analysis of South America from several interesting points, the dis- 
cussions later shifted to European historical philosophies. The works of the recent Popes 
also claimed the society's attention. Miscellaneous papers interspersed these sustained 
discussions, lending a pleasing note of variety to all the meetings.

sented talks not only by students but by several guest speakers. 

William Warren Peters was elected to the presidency of the club at the first meeting. 
Other officers chosen were: Paul Shannon, vice-president; Daniel Murdock, secretary; 
Edward Bergin, treasurer. 

Meetings were held twice a month, and gratifying attendance was noted at all the 
sessions. The timeliness of the subjects under discussion helped arouse much interest in 
the club's activities, while the ability of the student speakers made their talks unusually 

James M. Fallon, '24, an authority on the subject, addressed the club in February on 
"Innovations to Our Banking Systems." His talk proved unusually helpful to the stu-

Greek Academy 

This past year was the Academy's third under the able and brilliant direction of Mr. 
E. G. Callahan, S.J. It is customary for the Academy, at the beginning of its session, to 
map out along general lines, the chief goals which it will strive to attain during the ses- 
sion. In the past season, work was concentrated along four main courses: Aristotle's 
Theory of Poetry, St. Basil the Great on Literature, The Greek Anthology, and New Testa- 
ment Greek as exemplified in St. Luke. Auxiliary work was done along the more general 
avenues of the appreciation of the Hellenic tradition as influencing life and art throughout 
the centuries and the spirit of humanism in Greek Literature. 

It is impossible here to relate, except in the briefest of manners, the work actually 
accomplished. Of the various lectures and papers prepared by the members on the topics 
already mentioned, we can only say in a trite, though none the less sincere spirit of com- 
mendation, that they indicated scholarly research, painstaking care, and a deep love for 
men and things Greek. This was not the love of the sequestered, unseen and selfish stu- 
dent, but the love of life for life. In particular we would commend the work of Messrs. 
Leddy, Fay, Horgan, McCarthy, Currier, Carney, O'Boyle, Earls, M. Driscoll, and J. Dris- 
coll, for its especial reverence and affection for our Hellenic heritage. Their work, being 
a living work of love, was an inspiration and the regeneration of a seemingly lost cause.

The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin 

Continuing the activity which was officially closed at the end of the school year, the 
Sodality carried on its work into the summer. At the Sodality Convention of 
Catholic Colleges, held in Chicago last June; the Rev. Fr. Fair, S.J. and Fr. Gallagher, S.J., 
Moderators of the Resident and Day Student Sodalities, were in attendance. While theie 
they learned that Holy Cross had again been re-appointed to the National Advisory 
Board. In conjunction with this appointment, Gardiner S. Gibson, '33, was re-appointed to 
the office of Central Office Representative. 

September 26, opened the activity of the Sodality for the Scholastic term. The 
Sodalists were appropriately addressed by the Reverend Moderator, Fr. Fair. With a 
meeting of the Freshmen, in an open forum, these new members were addressed by Senior 
Sodalists, and introduced to their Prefect, Walter Clifford, '33. This meeting was followed 
by an open forum meeting at which the whole school was in attendance. 

At the initial meeting of the Freshmen Sodalists, the class of '36 was addressed by 
Walter Clifford, Prefect; Maurice B. Martin, chairman of the program committee; Ray- 
mond G. Leddy, a member of the publicity committee; and Gardiner S. Gibson, Central 
Office Representative, all these men being of the class of '33. In the second meeting, and 
first open forum of the entire Sodality, the members were addressed by Edward J. O'Brien, 
'33 and Richard J. McCarthy, '33. 

The following appointments were soon made for the year: John T. Dwight, general 
chairman; Gardiner S. Gibson, business manager; Merton J. Foley, secretarial committee; 
J. Albert Currier, Catholic literature committee; Robert V. Fay, publicity committee; 
Maurice B. Martin, program committee; and Timothy J. Collins, Jr.. chairman of mem- 

Upon the resignation of the general chairman, John T. Dwight, Richard J. McCarthy 
was appointed to succeed him. And upon the unfortunate illness of the Prefect, Walter 
J. Clifford, '33, Assistant Prefect Joseph Benotti, '34, took over his duties, assisted by Philip 
Macken, '34 and Jerome Lenihan, '35, secretary. 

Continuing with its previous policy the Sodality, with the great assistance of the 
Moderator, Fr. Fair, and the members, has enjoyed a successful year.

The past year has marked a new stage in the development of the Day-Students' 
Sodality. In the early months of the year, under the capable direction of the new moder- 
ator, Father Gallagher, S.J., steps were successfully taken towards a reorganization of this 
activity. The true purpose of the Sodality, as emphasized by its founders, was impressed 
upon all new members. In brief, this consists in a centralization of student effort in the 
religious and extra-curricular activities of the school. 

A new arrangement of meetings has also been introduced this year to provide conven- 
ient facilities for all students regardless ol class schedules. This has resulted in separate 
meetings of the Senior Sodality, consisting of members of the senior and junior classes, 
and for the Junior Sodality, comprising members of the sophomore and freshmen classes. 
Unity of action is guaranteed by the selection of common officers for both divisions. 

The year's work has consisted largely in developing a spirit of brotherhood and 
co-operation among all the members of the sodality. Under the inspiration of Father 
Gallagher and his membership committee, a strong bond has been lorged which will 
continue to bind all socialists, past and present, in the years to come. The activities of the 
year closed early in June with the annual induction of members at which a large group 
received diplomas signifying their perpetual enrollment under the banner of the sodality.

Outstanding among all the societies and activities of Holy Cross is the Sanctuary 
Society composed of students from the four classes. Its object is to train those students 
who desire to serve at the altar in that modesty and piety and religious bearing essential 
to a function so high and so honorable as the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. 

The Solemn Benediction which marked the formal opening of the school year was 
in charge of the officers of the society. The Solemn Benediction at the Mission Crusade 
Rally held on Fitton Field on October 9, 1932 was also in the charge of the society. Every 
Sunday night Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament was held in Memorial Chapel. 
Solemnity and simplicity added to the inspiring services. During the Students' Retreat in 
October and the Novena of Grace in March, the members of the society, under the direc- 
tion of the master of ceremonies, assisted at Benediction. 

The year's official activities ended with a banquet which was given to the members of 
the society by the faculty.

Inside Guard 

Outside Guard 




Four years ago this past March, the first real contact in a social way was made with 
the outside world in the formation of Crusader Council, Knights of Columbus. It was 
instituted to fill a long-felt need, that of a fraternal organization to solidify as it were the 
benefits of the Catholic training received here on the Hill by stimulating interest in 
Catholic lay-activity. As the budding organization grew and waxed stronger in its infiu- 
ence it became ajiparent that the K. of C. were truly going to become a force of opinion 
on the campus. 

Evidence of its firmness and stability were more than ever apparent in this year of 
economic strife. For despite bank closures, despite troubles on every side, Crusader Coun- 
cil has stood firmly erect with its head unbowed as it carries steadfastly onward the tradi- 
tions of Knighthood. As a token of its appreciation for the splendid co-operation of the 
Faculty, when the New Refectory was announced Crusader Council donated one thousand 
china plates toward the equipping of the new dining hall, these plates were the same pat 
terns as are on sale in the College bookstore at $12 a dozen. 

The Council and its leaders have striven hard to fill up the gap in the life of the 
average Cross man, by instigating and running to a successful conclusion many and varied 
social events. For the j>ast three years the annual Crusader dance has matched the Junior 
Proms by its brilliance, and this year under the leardership of Bro. Bernie Fee, two such 
dances were run, and the social needs and contacts of the men of the Hill were carefully 
nurtured and catered to. 

Hockey games, social parties, entertainments and banquets were the regular order for 
the Knights this year under the capable leadership of Bro. William Dozois of the junior 
class, and as another year of Knightdom draws to a close for many ol us we look to the 
underclassmen to carry on our work, and to keep the Crusader Monthly in the hands of 
those of us who are far from the Council Chamber.

This year marked the enlargement of the Key's personnel and several innovations in 
its duties. Its activities for the year were started with a general rally, which was closely 
followed by a private one for the freshmen alone. Preceding the Brown game, the walls 
of the entire school were decorated with lengthy pasteboard slogans which struck a highly 
responsive note in the student-body. In his desire to keep the spirit at white-heat, Bob 
O'Neill, as the energetic and enthusiastic chairman of the Key, held an afternoon rally 
in the Stadium, the day before the game. The team was holding its final practice session 
as the whole student-body, led by the band, marched to the field. Senator David I. Walsh 
and Gene Tunney were present as guests of the Key; each gave a fight-talk to the team 
and to the students in attendance. 

In preparaiton for the game with Harvard on the following Saturday, the various 
buildings again blossomed forth with many varied slogans. The Harvard rally, which 
was considered by many as the most-spirited ever seen on the Hill, featured the appearance 
of Phil O'Connell, '32's famed football captain. Holy Cross football pictures were shown; 
Ed Hanify thrilled all with his brilliant oratory and impassioned appeal for full support 
behind the team on the part of the students; Walter Clifford spoke spiritedly on behalf 
of the team. Megaphones and H. C. flags were distributed and lent much noise and color 
to the occasion. 

All in all, the Purple Key more than fulfilled its purpose, the development of the 
much abused possession, "school-spirit." The presence of this spirit was remarkably 
attested to by the fine feeling of interest and co-operation manifested by each and every 
student in the annual Song Fest. The Key is to be highly commended for its splendid 
work through the year and its highest reward will be in the continuance of its traditions 
by the succeeding classes, under the direction of their respective Key committees.

"Jus" LaSalle has been hopping to it of late and preparing some big things for the 
Senior Ball this coming June. Having made his selection of an executive committee con- 
sisting of George Moran, Edward Hanify, James Ryan, William Luby, and Edward 
McClure, and the sub-chairmen as Gordon Winslovv, Justin Renz, James Flanagan, Wil- 
liam Hindle, Richard Lenehan, Ralph Thompson, Thomas McCarthy, John Cahill, and 
Carl Ernst, the Chairman has been having a heavy correspondence over favors, orchestras, 
decorations and the like. 

The important question of a choice of an orchestra has been taking most of his time. 
Under consideration have been the bands of George Olsen, Emerson Gill, Andy Sannella, 
Edward Wittstein, and Ozzie Nelson. To date no definite selection has been made known. 

The class looks forward, since it has been duly conceded as the finest in years, to one 
of the best proms, a prom which we know will do justice to its seniority and superiority, 
a prom which will go down with the treasured sheepskin and the psyche books into 
the days of happy memory.

Junior Prom, Class of '33 

Even now, as we cf '33 await graduation, we live over again in memory that white- 
blanketed February night of a year and a half ago when we were kings for a time as we 
held our Junior Prom. Time will find it difficult to erase from our sentimental hearts the 
recollections of that happy week-end when studies were forgotten and jov was the goal of 
the moment. 

In planning for our prom, we selected Paul Shannon as chairman, knowing that to his 
capable person could be safely entrusted all the duties and responsibilities of managing 
such an affair. He more than justified our choice, not only by his own tireless efforts, but 
by the wise selections he made in naming commitees to assist him in arranging the prom. 

The manifold business incidents were ably cared for by Bob Tierney as chairman of: 
tickets, Jim Nolan as chairman of patrons, and Joe Smith as chairman of publicity. Dec- 
orations were handled well by George Haulman. The selection of programs was done by 
Ade Casey, while the striking favors were chosen by Dick Halloran. Music was cared 
for by Frank Rooney, who chose Lew Conrad to play. 

Our thanks must go as well to the executive committee, a group consisting of Ed 
Hanify, Lee Dante, Dick Healey, George Davet, Shawn Sheehan, Carl Ernst, Myles 
McAleer and Ken Cuneo.

Junior Prom, Class of '34 

Junior days ol the class of '34 reached their peak in February on the night of the tra- 
ditional Junior From. All before that glamorous night was anticipation, all since then 
has been anti-climax. Now that it is over the men of '34 can but live on the happy 
memories of those hours of beautiful gowns, soft lights and sweet music. 

The scene was the Bancroft Ballroom, transformed into a fairyland of palms and 
flowers. The music was by Teddy Black, whose intoxicating, Lombardo-like melodies 
furnished a melodious background for the dancing. The girls were all stunning, the 
music was superb, the setting was ideal — and '34 drank deep of its youth on that night of 

Too soon that bewilderingly joyous week-end was over; those days of hasty dressing, 
hurried calls, speeding taxis, telegrams, trains can be lived again only in memory. 

To James P. Bradley was given the honor of acting as chairman of the Prom and to 
him must go the praise lor the event's brilliant success. The members of his committees, 
too, must receive their share of plaudits lor the excellent way in which they performed 
their duties: Ted Keegan, chairman of music; Frank Gilligan, chairman of favors; Johnny 
Earls, chairman of patrons; Joe Mulligan, chairman of tickets; Tom Shea, chairman of 
programs; Gabe Ferrazzano, chairman of decorations; Bill Bennett, chairman of the 
executive committee; Joe Donelan, chairman of reception; Ed Kennedy, chairman of 
publicity; Henry Leary, chairman of printing. 

Senior Frosh Reception 

Depro, Sheehan, Ciarleglio, Nolan 

With Chairman Frank Cammarano arrang- 
ing a diversified program and with the junior and 
sophomores classes co-operating, this year's Sen- 
ior Reception to the Freshmen provided a night 
of brilliant entertainment. Held in Fenwick 
Hall on Feb. 27, the reception started at a brisk 
pace, raced into delirious tempo with mad non- 
sense, and closed with the audience limp with 

Paced by the Four Marx Brothers, impersonated by Lou Depro, Dan Sheehan, Frank 
Ciarleglio and Jim Nolan, the comedians stole the honors of the show. Henry Haywood, 
'35; Bill O'Brien, '34; Art Wallace, '34; and Tom Campbell, '34, joined forces to enact a 
clever skit, "Design For Living Rooms." Gil Murtha and Ed McCormack, both sopho- 
mores, staged "Rasputin and the Mad Monkey," to the accompaniment of prolonged 
laughter. Second Loyola's cohorts reached the heights of nonsense in "Animal Life in 
Bloomingdale," a collection of mad ideas. Jack Regan, Blaise Scavullo, Harry Furay, 
Charley Horgan and Dan Sheehan did the honors on this one. 

The work of several vocal soloists, among them Joe Payton, Tom McKeon, Joe Dunn, 
Tom Campbell and Jerry Ahearn, helped enliven the program. The Beaven Balladeers 
scored their usual success in their hot-cha interpretations, while dancing honors went to 
Paul Shannon and Henry Haywood. 

Deserved congratulations were showered on Frankie Cammarano, who arranged the 
program and made an able master of ceremonies. He was assisted by an executive com- 
mittee composed of Jim Flanagan, Ed Hanify, Pat Roche, Frank Ciarleglio, Paul Schoen- 
rock, Bill Hindle, Lou Depro, Bob O'Neill, John Pitts, Joe Dunn and George Corrigan.

'T'HE Crusaders in the days of the bucklers and plumes usually feasted in sumptuous 
banquet after a tiring assault on the foes, and the fullness and splendor of these medi- 
eval gatherings was reborn when a different clan of Crusaders banqueted in Fenwick Hall 
on December fifteenth. The football squad honored the entire college, by inviting the stu 
dents to partake of their feast. Gay festoons, colored cockades, and steaming roasts drew 
all to the refectories. 

Edward B. Hanify, '33, Thomas A. Shea, '34, Blaise F. Scavullo, '33, with the Senior 
and junior presidents, George B. Mo ran and Philip H. Dinan, respectively, composed the 
roster of the speakers' tables, while the musical "Crusaders" soothed what savage breasts 
were present. Joseph Payton, 'H, and Leon Dykas, '36, together with popular favorites, 
the "Beaven Balladeers" (Hardman, O'Brien and Dwyer) added their vocal talents to con- 
clude the evening's pleasure. Brother McCarthy appeared in both halls and received the 
due applause worthy of such effort. 


The Faculty reigned as hosts to the Senior Class on Tuesday, January seventeenth at 
the Annual Senior Banquet held in the ballroom of Worcester's Hotel Bancroft. After a 
noteworthy repast, the philosophers settled back in their chairs as George B. Moran, '33, 
their president, expressed his gratitude to the class, and the class's gratitude to the Faculty. 
Louis DePro, '33, ever witty, then began his duties as toastmastcr, introducing to the 
expectant listeners, Edward B. Hanify, '33. 

Hanify, in one of the most dynamic expressions of his ultra-dynamic career, delivered 
the Class Oration. He concluded by saying that in the fulfillment of the dreams of youth 
on Mount Saint James, "rests the fruition of our manhood, and the deathless immortality 
of Alma Mater." Anthony S. Woods, 'ii, Purple editor, followed with a musical ode. The 
last lines — 

". . . we must leave the feast 
Before the restless, racing seconds pass, 
And we are left at empty tables. Lo! 
The flames of hope are blazing in the east," 

were almost drowned out in well-deserved applause. Rev. John M. Fox, S.J., the Rector, 
concluded by exhorting the Seniors to remember the "necessity to realize hte importance of 
God in the world of business." 


The Bancroft ballroom was once more the scene of banqueting on February ninth, 
when the Junior Class forsook the peace of Beaven's portals and held their banquet. The 
repast, similar to that of the Senior feast, was well prepared, and it might be added, well 
consumed. The speakers' table presented as the first orator of the evening, Philip H. 
Dinan, Junior President. His talk resembled that of Moran's at the Fourth Year dinner, 
for he, too, thanked his classmates and the Faculty for their support and aid. Worcester 

was represented this evening by Edward J. Farrell, who performed the requirements of 
toastmaster. Following him, Harry W. Kirwin began his much-talked-about and praise- 
worthy oration. He expressed the whole purport of the evening in his sentence, "The 
dignities of mature manhood are now ours!" Following Kirwin, Paul J. Gilvary read 
Edward L. Williams' ode. Ed, unfortunately was absent due to illness. As a final cream 
to the evening, the Rector commissioned the Juniors in like fashion: "May you, too, go 
forth, champions of the true fear and the wise courage, to bring men back to the new sense 
of their dependence on their Creator." 


The Sophomore banquet was held on Tuesday, February fifteenth. Convened in the 
traditional ballroom of the Bancroft, the members of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and 
Thirty-five, celebrated their importance by carpe diem, but alas, only for a few hours. The 
first speaker of the evening was Benedict V. McGrath, Sophomore President, who 
addressed sincere and well-received words to his classmates. He then introduced to the 
audience, if an introduction was at all necessary, James F. Graham, the toastmaster. He 
upheld the tradition of this position, and then presented to the class Francis V. Hanify, who 
ranked with his famous brother as a decisive and convincing orator. The next man to 
stand on the dais was John H. Driscoll, who read the ode, a few lines of which we set 
down here, as this ode was judged highly by all present, 

The mist o'er Camelot's spires is but a dream, 
That vap'rous nimbus gently lifts and lo! 
Appears the crown of Fenwick, with a beam 
Of sunburst flashing on a Cross. 

This ode ranked with those of the previous poems read at the former banquets and 
worthy applause was granted its author. Reverend Father Rector closed the evening's 
program with a timely discourse on the affairs of the nation and its influence on the pres- 
ent rising generation. 


The fledglings were made chieftains at the Freshman Banquet held in the Bancroft 
Hotel on Thursday, February twenty-third. The dinner was well-prepared and enjoyed 
by both the students and members of the teaching staff. Joseph Gallagher, '36, Freshman 
executive, opened the evening's speechs and xpressed his gratitud for the confidence his 
classmates placed in him. Robert Graham (no relation to the master of ceremonis of the 
Sophomore banquet) then spoke as toastmaster, introducing Edmond D. Benard, '36, the 
Class Orator, who very aptly held the interest of his listeners and drove home his timely 
principles. There was some wonderment regarding the selection of the clas odist, and when 
Paul V. Marchese had finished his ode, it was generally agreed that a fine ode had been 
written. The Rector spoke for an hour or more on topics of the day, and at no time 
throughout his talk did the interest of the Freshmen lag. The Freshmen returned to 
Pakachoag filled with the confidence that recognition always effects. 

Much praise is due J. Edward Bouvier and the "Crusader" orchestra, under the 
direction of Edward Keegan, '33, for their excellent supply of music and entertainment 
during the four class banquets.

Under the capable management of Thomas O'Connell, '33, the 
annual Easter dance was held during the month of April. The 
place selected was the Biltmore. The committees assisting the 
chairman were headed by John F. Ward, '33; Michael J. Seith, '33, 
Frank J. Morris, '33; Charles S. Horgan, '33; Thomas F. Kenny, 
'33; Robert H. Tierney, '33; Joseph F. X. Mandry, '33; and John 
T. McCarthy, '33. 
With the passing of 1933 the Metropolitan Club of Holy Cross College finds itself 
in possession of a new and greater social standard for "Met Clubbers" of the future to pre- 
serve. Always a club jealous of its reputation for the best collegiate affair of New York's 
Easter season, this year despite the trepidations of the depression pocketbooks, the club 
staked all in a desperate attempt to exceed all past successes. As a result the past suprem- 
acy of Vallee, Lopez, Olsen, and others fell into shadow under the rhythmic swing of Eddie 
Duchin, the maestro of society and the Central l-'ark Casino. On the night of April 17, 
1933, the greatest dance in the Met Club history was held in the Cascade Ballroom of the 
Hotel Biltmore. The unbeatable combination of the Biltmore and Eddie Duchin won 
with all and a night not soon to be forgotten was the reward. 

To the initiative of the general chairman, Thomas J. O'Connell, Jr., we owe the 
procuring of Duchin. He gave much of his valuable time and untiring efforts to preserve 
Metropolitan Club dance quality and to surpass the successful events of previous years. 
To his assistants we must also give due praise and likewise to the many past and present 
members of the club and their triends without whose aid the dance could not have been 

a success.

Shortly after returning to the College for the scholastic yeat 
1 932-' 33, the Greater Boston Club of Holy Cross met in the audi- 
torium. The meeting was called to order by James J. Nolan, '33, 
vice-president, during the year 1931 -'32. At this meeting officers 
were elected for the on-coming year. 

About the first of December again the club met to elect a chair- 
man for the annual Christmas dance. Walter Clifford. '33, was 
elected and immediately began preparations lor the dance. To the 
deep sorrow of the entire club, Walter's work was cut short by his 
becoming sick and being confined to the Boston City Hospital for 
several months to follow. The success of the dance was in no 
small way due to the work of Walter up until the time of his illness. James J. Nolan, '33, 
assisted by several senior members of the club took up the work of running the dance. 
The affair, a dinner dance, was held at the Hotel Somerset. Ruby Newman and his 
recording orchestra furnished the music. The dinningroom was decorated with laurel, 
characteristic of the Christmas season, and candle-light furnished the light throughout 
the evening. The affair was undoubtedly the outstanding college social event of the 
Christmas holidays in and around Boston. The committee named to assist the chairman 
was James J. Nolan, '33; James J. Ryan, '33; Joseph F. Smith, '34; John R. Cahill, '33; and 
Daniel R. W. Murdock, '33. 

Shortly after the middle of the year, again the club met, this time to prepare for the 
annual Easter dance. Departing from long established customs, the club sponsored an 
Easter dance under a chairmanship of a committee ot lour, one representative from each 
class. John R. Cahill, '33; Thomas L. Mackin, '34; John C. McCann, '35, and Charles F. 
Hoar, '36, made up the four. Their efforts merited, on all sides, congratulations from one 
of the largest groups ever to attend a Greater Boston Club dance. The beautiful Hotel 
Bradford Salon and the popular music of I-? ill Bigley added color and gaiety to the even- 
ing. The well selected evening of Patriots' Day met with approval from all concerned. 
Added to the entertainment was the talent of Henry A. Hayward, '35, the club's far-famed 
tap dancer. 

All things taken into consideration, the club enjoyed a most successiul season. Bosotn 
members of 33, look to those who follow them to continue the well established traditions 
of the club, during the years to come.

Undoubtedly one of the outstanding clubs, the Springfield Club 
maintained and renewed a high precedence in student activity and 
endeavor again this year. Fulfilling its end, the club proceeded in 
the traditional manner to welcome the incoming freshmen of 
Springfield and Suburbs and to initiate them into the Spirit of their 
new Alma Mater by a genial "get acquainted" banquet early in 
Septemb. Francis Costigan, '33, acted as chairman for this affair. 
During the Christmas holidays the club held its annual dance at 
the Hotel Kimball on the 27th of December. Chairman Edward J. Smith, 3i, and his 
assistants entertained some hundred couples consisting of club members and their guests. 
Dancing was to the delightful music of Bernie Stevens and his Recording Orchestra. Later, 
on the 19th of April, the members of the club and their friends gathered at the Clinton Hotel 
to attend a supper dance. Edward J. Smith, '33 was also chairman for this event, 
man for this affair.

Albany, the Capital City of the Empire State, may well be proud 
of the group of young men coming from the city and surrounding 
districts who constitute the Albany Undergraduate Club, one of 
the most active and enthusiastic organizations on the Hill. For the 
past several years, the Albany Club presented the Musical Clubs of 
the College to large and appreciative audiences. To the success of 
these past social afTairs the present members of the Club gave much 
of their time and effort. 

Notable among the many functions and activities of the Albany 
Club was the dinner dance held at the DeWitt Clinton Hotel during the Christmas recess 
under the direction of Chairman Joseph F. Feily. On this occasion the club was host to its 
Alumni members and friends. The success of the affair evidences the co-operation and good 
fellowship found in their midst.

Once again the students Irom the Pine State have come together 
in an institution of their predecessors to carry on the traditions of 
Holy Cross and especially the traditions of Holy Cross students 
from Maine. The class of '36 has given evidence that the steady 
increase in Maine members at the college is to continue. The club 
has grown to become a sizeable and representative group among 
these distinct organizations representative of many states. 

During the Christmas recess the annual dance that features the club's social activitic- > 
was held. Merton Foley, chairman of the dance, managed the affair in the traditional man- 
ner. It was held at the Lafayette Hotel in Portland on the evening of December twenty- 
six. Mr. Foley was assisted in the arrangements by the executive committee of the club and 
by Edward O'Brien and Peter Flanagan.

dinner dancing, cabaret style was put in vogue. Edward J. Mori- 
arty, general chairman, engaged "Eddie" Payton and his rhythm- 
makers to furnish the music. It was easily the outstanding social 
event of the season for the younger element of Holyoke and 

Mr. Moriarty was ably assisted by the following staff to make this 
event the outstanding success of the Yuletide season. The Execu-

On the 26th ol December, the New Jersey Club sponsored its 
annual Christmas holiday dance at the Cascades of the Hotel Bilt- 
more in New York. Freddy Martin and his Park Central Hotel 
Orchestra furnished the music, and about three hundred and fifty 
couples attended. This social event has long been the gathering 
place of the holiday season for students from Fordham, New 
York University, Columbia, Georgetown, Notre Dame, and Villa- 
nova, residing in the metropolitan area. Robert S. O'Neill of the 
class of thirty-three took charge as general chairman. His work 
in this dance, whose patronage listed such names as: Hon. John F. Curry, Gov. J. Ely, 
Gov. Moore, and Senator David I. Walsh, was as efficiently performed as the progressive 
activity which he manifested in the Purple Key, a society of which he headed during the 
past year. 

During the Easter vacation, the club, working in joint union with the New Jersey 
Alumni Association, tendered a testimonial banquet to the famous Owen Carroll, former 
Crusader athletic luminary. In addition to this, the Glee Club concert in Jersey City was 
aided materially by the co-operation of the club members. New Jersey has a club of 
which the Alumni and school may be justly proud.

The Pennsylvania Club for many years has been one of the out 
standing and active organiaztions on the campus. Thirty-one 
representatives from every part of the state give the club a genu- 
inely distinctive character. At the first meeting of the club held 
shortly after the commencement of the school year, Frank Rooney 

was elected president. Michael McDonald was elected as Chairman of the Christmas 

Assisted by a capable committee, the chairman selected the Century Club in Scranton 
as the scene of the annual affair. Carl Keating and his orchestra played for the event 
which took place on December 28th. With the co-operation of the Pennsylvania Club of 
Fordham University, the dance was one of the most enjoyable and successful of the Christ- 
mas season. During the Easter holidays a private party was held in Pittston and plans for 
a reunion during the summer vacation were made.

The scene of the Fitchburg Club's annual dance of the Yuletitle 
season was the Sterling Inn, Sterling, Mass. The affair lasted 
from 8.00 till 2.00, with music being furnished by the Inn orches- 
tra. More than sixty couples were in attendance. The success of 
the event reflects I he capable management of its chairman,

Though smaller in numbers than in previous years, the Water- 
bury Club had an extensive and successful program during 1932- 
33. Shortly before the opening of the school year the club held 
a reception to greet its incoming members. The affair, held at the 
Watertown Lawn Club, struck the keynote for the Brass City 
organization's activities, and had Edward Bergin and Ray Fitz- 
patrick in charge. 

The club's Christmas formal, held at the Waterbury Club, 
marked the beginning of the holiday dances in Waterbury and set a high standard for 
other clubs to follow. Edward Bergin was chairman of the committee. During the win- 
ter season the club held several informal dinner meetings, with members of the faculty 
as guests of honor. With the club as original sponsor, a Charity Ball was held at Hamil- 
ton Park Pavilion during the Easter holidays. All the Catholic college clubs of the city, 
undergraduate and alumni, co-operated in making the affair a brilliant event. Edward 
Bergin of Holy Cross was general chairman, with Ray Fitzpatrick and Frank Moynihan 
as members of the committee in charge.

After several years of inactivity the influx of Vermont natives to the College warranted 
the revival of the Vermont Undergraduate Club. The interest evinced made reorganization 
speedy under the leadership of Albert Currier. It epitomized the spirit of fraternalism and 
good fellowship so prevalent here on the Hill. 

A Christmas Dance was found inadvisable in the Club's incipient stage and since its 
members were scattered over the state with no easily accessible center for the dance. Plans 
were laid for a homey day of cheer in an outing and "sugaring oft" on the Ranger Trail, 
leading to Mt. Monadnock, in New Hampshire. This day in late March was reminiscent 
of the old home state's celebration of the advent of spring. In the middle of May a banquet 
was held at the Lobster Garden in Worcester. With this new era of the club's existence 
commenced, the Vermont undergraduates are looking forward to a flourishing and pro- 
gressive future.

fully mirrored in the smart affair which climaxed the year's work. A dance under the

Michael Favulli 

*- V ."3 

The past year has been one of the most outstanding in the history of the Worcester 
Undergraduate Club. Opening the school year with an enrollment of nearly three hun- 
dred members, comprising students from every section of the city and all the surrounding 
towns, this club soon manifested a spirit of unity and good fellowship seldom found in so 
large a school organization. Credit for this is due largely to the efforts of the club's new 
moderator, Father Meagher, S.J., under whose capable guidance the first meetings of the 
club were arranged and the officers for the year elected. 


The club held its first formal meeting of the year during the October Retreat, for the 
purpose of choosing officers for the year and of electing the chairman of the annual Christ- 
mas dance. The balloting resulted in the election of Patrick J. Roche, '33, as president; 
James F. Harrahy, '34, as vice-president; William E. Langlois, '33, as treasurer; and J. 
Frank. Dulligan, '35, as secretary. The popular Mike Favulli, 'M, was chosen to manage 
the club's Christmas ball. This choice proved to be a wise one. Showing the same dynamic 
energy and sure judgment which has characterized his work on college gridirons for the 
past four years, Mike lost no time in laying the plans for a gala social event. 

Christmas Ball 

The evening of December 31st was the occasion of this traditional affair, held in the 
Elks' Ballroom to the soothing strains of Ed Murphy's Orchestra. The excellence of the 
music, decorations, and other details testified to the earnest work performed by Mr. 
Favulli and his executive committee, composed of Peter Scales, '33, William Regan, '33, 
Denis Gorman, 3i, Edward McClure, '3i, and Henry Leary, '34. It suffices to say that 
this affair was the city's outstanding ball in a week which is devoted to holiday festivities 
of this kind. 

Gorman, Favulli, Scales, McClun.- 

Easter Dance 

The same praise may be justly applied to the club's second social event, the Easter 
dance, which is run annually during the Easter holidays by the members of this organiza- 
tion. Thomas Holly of the senior class, who was chosen as chairman from a large group 
of candidates, proved to be a very capable manager. Assisted by an executive committee, 
composed of John Williamson, Walter Henry, Philip Hart, Thomas Degnan, Peter Scales, 
Joseph Scannell, Edward Callahan, George Bruso, Hugh O'Flynn, all of the senior class, 
Mr. Hoily succeeded in running one of the season's finest social affairs in the Bancroft 
Hotel Ballroom, which was tastefully decorated with the College colors for the occasion. 

Parents' Night 

Encouraged by the success of these two activities, the members of the club determined 
to go a step further this year, in arranging a college reception for their parents, for the 
purpose of strengthening and confirming the ties of friendship which exist between the 
parents, the students and the College faculty. Although this idea has been practiced inter- 
mittently in former year, nevertheless, the moderator and officers of the club felt that the 
splendid spirit of co-operation evinced this year by the club members would guarantee its 
success. Accordingly, Edward McClure, '35, was appointed chairman of Parents' Night, 
and, aided financially by the generous support of Mr. Favulli and Mr. Holly from the pro- 
ceeds of their respective dances, succeeded in staging the greatest affair of this kind in the 
club's history. 

The reception, held during the recent Easter holidays, opened with Solemn Benedic- 
tion in the College Chapel, followed by a novel program of entertainment in Fenwick Hall. 
This consisted of a series of humorous skits and musical selections by members of the club. 
The feature of the affair was the appearance of an orchestra composed of club members, 

First Row — Sheehan. Holly. Keenan. Tivnan. 
Second Rou — McCarthy. Gorman. McClure (Chairman); O'Keefe. Ryan. 
Third Rou — O'Flvnn, McGrath. Callahan. O'Gorman. McAleer, Favulli. 

which rendered popular selections during the serving of refreshments. Mr. McClure was 
assisted hy an executive committee composed of William McGrath, Thomas O'Keefe, 
Michael Favulli, John Keenan, J. Leo O'Gorman, Thomas McCarthy, and James Philhin, 
all of the senior class. The committees on arrangements were headed by the following: 
Entertainment, Dennis Gorman, '33; Program, Thomas Holly, '33; Ushers, Hugh O'Flynn, 
'33; Publicity, Joseph Tivnan, '33; Invitations, Donald McDermott, '33; Refreshments, 
Frederick Callahan, '33; Reception, Philip Ryan, '33; Stage, Jeremiah J. Sheehan, '33, and 
Music, Paul Fleming, '34. The efforts of these men earned the whole-htearted praise of all 
the guests present. 

By far the greatest work of the club in the past year has been in regard to the building 
of a finer college spirit among its members, in promoting a feeling of good-fellowship 
between day-student and resident-student, and in strengthening the ties of loyalty which 
bind all Holy Cross men to their college. This is the innate purpose of every undergradu- 
ate club, this is the chief reason for their existence. The Worcester Undergraduate Club 
has been motivated by this spirit in the past, and, it is hoped, will continue to be such in 
the future. If the past ten months be taken as a criterion for further endeavor, the coming 
years may safely be forecast as years of real value and success. 

Front Ron — O'Flynn, McCarthy, Holly (Chairman), McClure, Callahan. 

Back, Row — Lucey, Henry, Sheehan, Dcgnan, Hart, McAleer, Keenan, Holly.

The New Football Coach— Dr. Edward N. Anderson 

Coming as a decided surprise, announcement was made late in March by the Athletic 
Association that Dr. Edward N. Anderson, former All-American end at Notre Dame 
under Knute Rockne, would succeed Capt. John McEwan as head coach of football. A 
native of Chicago and a practicing specialist in eye, ear, nose and throat diseases, Dr. 
Anderson comes to Holy Cross with the highest recommendations. 

Getting down to business immediately, the new Crusader mentor made plans for a 
strenuous program of spring practice. Sessions began April 19, during the Easter holidays, 
and the former Notre Dame end began at once to teach his squad the Notre Dame system. 
Supplanting the Warner system, which had been in vogue for three years under Capt. 
McEwan, the new style of play offered many difficulties to the candidates, but rapid 
progress was made under Dr. Anderson's guidance. 

Though comparatively unknown as a coach in the East, Dr. Anderson had a high 
reputation in the mid-West. The De Paul team, which he coached for three years, 
compiled an impressive record of wins, trouncing Gus Dorais' Detroit eleven in one noted 
upset. The doctor's previous coaching experience had been gained at Columbia College, 
where he turned out strong elevens. That he holds the respect of his fellow coaches can 
be seen from the fact that his highest recommendations came from such famous mentors 
as "Hunk" Anderson of Notre Dame, "Sleepy Jim" Crowley of Fordham, and Slip Madi- 
gan of St. Mary's. 

After graduation from Notre Dame in 1921, Dr. Anderson accepted a coaching posi- 
tion at Columbia College, Dubuque, Iowa. Remaining there three years, his teams twice 
won the Western Interstate Conference title. He transferred himself to De Paul Univer- 
sity, Chicago, in 1925 and remained there for six successful years. Devoting himself to 
the study of medicine, Anderson earned his medical degree from Rush Medical College, 
Chicago. While in the Windy City he played professional football with the Chicago 
Bears and was tice named an All-League end. 

Known in his undergraduate days as "Nick," the doctor played varsity football with 
the Irish for four years, and captained the Ramblers in his senior year. Under Knute 
Rockne's coaching he became a brilliant end, both on offense and defense, and it was said 
of him that no play went around in his end in four years. At one stage of his career he 
played one end, while Hunk Anderson, present Notre Dame coach, held down the other 
wing berth. Later he was one-half of the famous Anderson-Kiley duo of ends who struck 
fear into the heart of the opposition. 

As team-mates on those great Notre Dame elevens of 1918-1921, he had such football 
immortals as the incomparable George Gipp, "Chet" Wynne, "Hunk" Anderson, "Heck" 
Garvey, Harry Mehre, Tom Lieb, Joe Brandy, Johnny Mohardt and "Lefty" Kastner. 

Anderson, as can be seen from his picture, is handsome, youthful-looking, and per- 
sonable. Standing five feet ten, he packs 170 pounds of bone and sinew in a muscular 
body. An easy conversationalist, he can be persuasive and forceful, as the occasion 
demands. He brings to his new post a real zest and enthusiasm for football, and lis 
determined to turn out powerful teams. 

With Holy Cross supporters backing him to a man, the new Purple mentor can 
depend on whole-hearted support and cooperation. For his sake, and that of Holy Cross, 
we wish him the highest success. May he reign long and successfully at Mt. St. James.

Behind every football team stands a group of hard workers always on hand to make 
things run smoothly for the players, to care for equipment, to make travel arrangements 
and to manage the destinies of the whole squad. Jack Sullivan, as varsity manager, 
made an enviable record in efficiency, good management and in his knack for doing the 
right thing at the right time. He reflected his training under Managers Connolly, Earls 
and Santen. The remainder of the managing staff, headed by Manager-elect John Earls 
and Bob Woods, ably assisted Jack Sullivan in the countless dressing room, field and travel- 
ling duties that make their work such an important factor in staging a football game. 

The management of the freshman eleven was entrusted to Jim Nolan. Under his 
direction the cub team enjoyed a season of flawless arrangements and excellent manage-

1932 Football Season 

What was potentially one of the most powerful grid-machines ever to be moulded 
on the shivering slopes of Mt. St. James, and the wind-beaten plains of Freshman Field — 
Captain John McEwan's third edition of Warner wonder-workers, entered the seasonal 
tournaments with a promise that was echoed and re-echoed through all the sport-pages 
of the East. Holy Cross had arrived. Formerly a Purple team would have entered a 
major tour game an underdog — with but an outside, fighting chance of victory; in 1932 
the Crusaders were favored in every game, with the exception of their clash against an 
undefeated and untied Brown eleven. Their potentialities recognized by most of the 
scribes and grid devotees of New England, before the season was half over "McEwan's 
men" were being mentioned as one of the greatest of eastern teams, and as having an 
excellent chance of being one of the select group of undefeated combines. The squad had 
not the number of individual stars that former rosters had contained. It was their con- 
sistent power, together with a heavy, powerfully balanced line and an almost inexhaust- 
able number of shock troops that set them apart. Starting the season slow — due mainly 
to insufficient pre-season practice — they gradually acquired a cohesion of team play that 
reached its peak about mid-season in the blazing battle with the Big Brown Bear. Here, 
after reaching their zenith they faltered, and helped not at all by unfortunate develop- 
ments, ended the season somewhat disastrously. 

Optimism was rampant and hopes ran high as the "symphony in purple" opened 
their season against the New River State aggregation. The whistle shrilled. The Cru- 
saders slowly lunged up to the line. The hooter's toe thudded against the pigskin as, 
forming with the kick, one of the most powerfully balanced teams ever fielded in the 
Stadium moved in defensive array down the white-barred gridiron. The game with the 
southerners was meant to be more of a "tune-up" clash than a dyed-in-blood, slam-bang 
affair, however, the Purple realized soon after the opening whistle that it was to be a 
bitter battle. A husky line, unexpected as it was, made the Purple forwards somewhat 
embarrased at the outset, but finding themselves they soon gained the upper hand and 
bowled over practically everything in sight. There was nothing particularly spectacular 
about the game. It was more or less of a rough, irregular see-saw fiasco that ended with 
Holy Cross on the heavy end of a 13 to 6 score. It was, sad to relate, rather disastrous, 
as Captain Jim Ryan and Don Kelly were injured, the former for the remainder of the 
season, and the latter for many successive games. It was certainly an arduous opening 
game, but it didn't stem the Crusader hopes in the least. 

Sustaining many injuries from their bruising battle with New River State, the 
Purple stacked up against the Providence Friars, and were slow to get under way. The 
thoroughly game and capable Rhode Island eleven, flushed with a tie with Rutgers, gave 
them a busy and interesting afternoon. The first period was scoreless and was featured 
by the punting duel between Jarvis and O'Keefe, the latter was the visiting start of the 
day. In the second quarter, however, the power plays started to take their toll. Rovinski 
and Murray tore through the tackles, chiseled and chopped their way over the line in a 
sustained march that culminated with Tony crashing over the score. The ice being 
broken by this time, the Crusader rolled on merrily. A pass that covered over fifty yards 
was completed from Rovinski to Britt, putting Holy Cross inside the ten-yard line, and 
again the Kingston flash tore the Providence line to ribbons as he scored standing up. 
Just as the half ended, Marty Murray frogged into the ether, intercepted a pass and raced 
36 yards to the third touchdown. 

Bobby Donovan electrified the crowd when he combined with Tommy O'Connor to 
produce the final tally. Snaring a short, flat pass from the quarterback, he cut over to 
the right, eluded two Friar tackles in a heady piece of broken field running, and stretching 
his legs he out-sprinted the safety man to chalk up the final Holy Cross score of the 
afternoon. Providence, on the other hand, with their hard-running, high-booting O'Keefe 
was not to be denied one score. As the game was drawing to a close, and the Purple 
defence momentarily sagged, as the Rhodians passed and passed and then passed to a 
touchdown. The final score was 26 to 6, and the improvement over the previous per- 

formance was noticeable in the Holy Cross attack. It was smoother and 
evener, but as yet not at its true strength. 

The University of Maine, with the well-known Rudy Vallee, as a side 
attraction,- was the next victim of the Purple guns. The hoys from the Pine 
Tree State proved to be little more than a sacrificial victim for the well- 
oiled and smooth-running "Warner attack." Every Crusader for whom a 
suit could be procured was rushed into the fray in order to stop the flood 
of touchdowns. Holy Cross having had a taste of what cohesion could do, 
evidently liked the taste and came strongly back for more. The game was 
scarcely a few minutes old when, in five rapid-fire plays, that all but carried 
through the end stands, they rang up the first marker. Shortly after this 
sporadic outburst, Rovinski rambled casually down the greensward to place 
the ball in scoring position, and again Harms drove over the last white line. 
Here the second team was rushed in, but evidently to no avail as a sus- 
tained drive was climaxed by Bobby Donovan in a brilliant sprint, and a 
third touchdown resulted. 

Changing tactics in the second half, Rovinski took to the air route, and 
those long, high passes, so feared by Holy Cross' opponents, started soaring 
everywhere. Tony hurled a lengthy 50-yarder to Britt, and the latter 
romped over. Still later he tossed and completed one to Avery, who was 
far beyond the Maine safety man and consequently rung up the final score. 
There was a choice bit of dramatics in one of the funniest incidents of the 
season that followed, when Romansky dashed daringly through a maze of 
Purple jerseys and loped nonchalantly down the landscape with Rovinski 
et al trotting alongside for interference. The latter probably thought that 
since the Maine interference was deplorably inefficient that the least Holy 
Cross could do would be to run it for them. He succeeded commendably, 
too, for Romansky trotted behind him for 40 yards and the utter annihila- 
tion of Maine was averted. 

The following Saturday saw Holy Cross meet her first major opponent' 
— successfully, as the mighty Titans from the University of Detroit rode 

into the battle. The Crusaders were by this time seasoned and perfectly 
conditioned, and the line, having smoothed off the rough edges of inex- 
perience, smothered the Titan interference as well as the ball carriers. They 
opened holes in the frontier that the backs could walk through, and carried 
out their work so well that Detroit actually lost four yards on their running 
plays. Although the margin of victory was close, the play was not, with 
the exception of the final minutes. 

It was a test of the Rockne system against the Warner system, and the 
Warner workers came out decidedly the better. For the first three periods 
the Crusaders had things all their own way and the Titans couldn't even 
muster a first down. Don Kelly pierced the center of the line for the first 
touchdown in the second quarter, and time and time again the Purple 
juggernaut ripped down the field only to have the attack falter within the 
ten-yard line. Twice passes were grounded in the end-zone. 

Holy Cross had the answer to everything but the tiny, elusive 
McCracken whom the Detroit mentor inserted in the closing minutes. 
This gentleman all but changed the story, as he suddenly unleashed a des- 
perate, well-timed passing barrage that brought the spectators to their feet. 
Unable to cope with this sporadic deluge, the Purple weakened and Raj- 
kovich carried the oval to a score. McCracken made good the conversion, 
and started another devastating attack that the Crusaders happily succeeded 
in checking by the final whistle. Had it not been for a field goal by Clif- 
ford in the third quarter, the Titan might have prevailed, but as it was the 
line cinched the victory — a 9 to 7 victory that brought the Purple recogni- 
tion as one of the strongest of eastern teams, with probably the best forward 
wall in New England. 

Leaving the familiar locale of Fitton Field for the first time, and suf- 
fering a natural let-down after their win over Detroit, McEwan's "sym- 
phony in Purple" raided the banks of the Raritan and defeated Rutgers 
for the eighth consecutive year. The Worcester eleven kept the scarlet on 
the defensive throughout the whole game, mingling passes with tackle 




slants, but Rutgers put up a stalwart bulwark in the first half. The third 
canto found Holy Cross rising, as no less than three touchdowns were 
called back for alleged penalties. Don Kelly crashed over the line for the 
one score that the Purple was allowed. Thus it was that off-side penalties, 
many of them being rather doubtful, kept the score down to 6 to 0. The 
hard-riding Crusaders, however, were still in the undefeated lists. 

Boasting of a string of eleven consecutive victories, an unbeaten, fast- 
stepping Catholic University aggregation trekked to Worcester with high 
hopes of overcoming the Purple. Using the Rockne system, they made 
their presence felt from the opening whistle, but the Crusaders were well 
trained for their offence from the Detroit game. They had a heavy line, 
but here again the locals went them one better by fielding the more pow- 
erful frontier. The first two stanzas were even with neither eleven having 
much of an edge. The McFwanmen snapped into action during the third 
period, but their dives met with stubborn resistance from the Capitol City 
gridders, and it remained tor the fourth period to produce the winning 
marker. The break came when Rovinski quick-kicked offside on the 
Catholic University three-yard line, for on the next play the entire Purple 
line crashed through to smother the punter and register a safety. Their 
spirit broken by this sudden and unexpected turn of events, the Cardinals 
were further crushed when the wiry Tommy O'Connor ran the following 
kick-off back 60 yards to the Scarlet 23-yard line. The thoroughly irked 
and ired Crusaders ripped and tore the University line as in consecutive 
smashes they drove down to the 17-yard line, then to the 12, and 7, and a 
penalty placed them on the one-yard stripe. From here Rovinski plunged 
over for the six points and the assurance of victory. The final score was 
8 to 0, as for the fourth straight Saturday the Crusaders had humbled an 
undefeated eleven. Word came from Cambridge that the Big Brown 
Bear had clawed the Crimson, and consequently Holy Cross and Brown 
University were the only colleges in New England who had a clean slate. 

A crisp Saturday in November — a battle between Holy Cross and 

Brown the only unsmirched elevens in this section of the country — teem- 
ing stands in the Brown Stadium — radio announcers' colorful descriptions. 
This was the setting of the Crusader's greatest performance of the season. 
As he swung into action in the opening period, an unfortunate fumble 
gave the ball to the Bruin, and Bob Chase, unable to pierce the Purple line, 
dropped back to his 22-yard line to break the ice with a field-goal. In the 
second quarter Holy Cross started to throw her scare into the widely- 
heralded Brunonians. The Worcester forward wall began to push around 
with surprising ease. Several times a frantic Providence frontier held in 
the very shadows of their own goal posts. The third quarter saw the 
attack continuing when mingling daring passes with power plays, the 
Purple smashed down the field and over the last white line. Jack O'Con- 
nor converted successfully. The unbelievable had happened. Holy Cross 
led Brown 7 to 3, with but four minutes left to play. The Purple stands 
were in an uproar. The radio announcer shouted himself hoarse as he 
broadcast the startling news. Confident and cool, the Purple launched 
another attack that was checked by penalties on the Providence 20-yard 
line, and the latter took the oval in a last desperate trial. Two passes 
were grounded, but the next was completed for a first down. A pair of 
substitutes appeared, and Holy Cross took a five-yard penalty. Brown 
fought its way to the Holy Cross 30-yard line, apparently were checked, 
but two more replacements brought another penalty and a first down. 
After several scrimmages, the identical thing happened again, and the 
Crusader found his back to the wall as a result of the substitutions. Gam- 
mino plunged over for the victory and Chase's educated toe kicked the goal. 
Of course there were charges and counter charges. Indignation ran 
high in veiled newspaper paragraphs, suggesting the coaching situation 
was not as happy as it might be. In the following week, conditions 
reached an impasse and announcement was made that Holy Cross had 
suspended its coach. Nothing, however, could retrieve a victory that the 
Crusaders' followers considered to be justly theirs. 

After a week, of uncertainty while the coaching problem was being 
raked over the coals, the discouraged Purple eleven moved to Cambridge, 
where, in a phlegmatic fandango, they bowed listlessly before the Crimson. 
From the very start of the embroglio it seemed to be a return to glory for 
the Holy Cross team. They continually fought down the length of the field, 
only to be halted inside the ten-yard stripe because they had lost their fire 
and fight. Suffice it to say that Harvard took advantage of the one oppor- 
tunity that the afternoon offered her. Three long passes and a series of line 
thrusts and Waters went over for the score. Wells made good the kick 
and the result was settled at 7 to 0. Seven times the Purple was inside 
the Cantabs' 15-yard line, and three times within their three-yard stripe, 
but no score resulted. The powerful team had lost its punch. This became 
even more evident in the two games that followed. 

The game with the Jaspers of Manhattan ended in a resultless score- 
less tie. It was a disappointment from all angles. The New Yorkers were 
anxious to see the team that out-clawed Brown, but the streaming rain, the 
field of mud, and the coaching difficulties had taken their toll. The Holy 
Cross combine out-rushed, and out-manuevered the Green-shirts, but they 
didn't out-fight them, consequently the score was absolutely nil. At the 
opening whistle, the Crusader machine rolled down to the one-yard line, 
but here they faltered and never again did they come as close. Neither 
eleven was able to push the ball anywhere. The punts were wobbling as 
the wet ball slithered like a watermellon seed, making an interesting game 
impossible, and Holy Cross went into the game with Boston College ar 
humbled but doggedly dangerous team. 

The day of the Jesuit college classic was cold and bitter with a harsh, 
biting wind sweeping across the field. The wind made the Boston College 
kickers embarrassed, but it was more than counteracted by the booting of 
Joe Ambrose. Joe had never punted before in the season, but it was he 
and he alone who saved the day for the Purple hordes. His kicking was 

just a gift from heaven to the dilapidated Crusaders. On one occasion he 
stepped back to his own three-yard line, leisurely took the ball from center 
and proceeded to kick it seventy-seven yards through the air, as it landed 
far beyond the Boston College safetyman, on the Maroon 20-yard stripe and 
rolled to the eight-yard line for a total gain of exactly eighty-nine yards. 

Shortly after the game started both teams showed their willingness to 
play a kicking game and wait for the breaks. The Maroon soon set their 
blocky Mr. Chesnulevich loose, and that dizzy-dashing bundle of dynamite 
did everything that an ail-American would be expected to do as he whirled 
and chopped through the tackles and raced around the ends on his scin- 
tillating dashes that brought the ball to the very edge of the Crusaders' goal. 
The Crusaders, who had up to now, been using a six-two-two-one defence, 
changed tactics with a seven-two-two system. That change seemed to throw 
a monkey-wrench into the Boston attack. Chesnulevich was held on the 
two-yard line, and the aforementioned Mr. Ambrose retreated and booted 
a spiral far over across into Maroon territory. Whenever Holy Cross 
would be put in an embarrassing position Ambrose would lift the stands 
with a tremendous punt. He "suttinly did punt pow'ful," but the once- 
mighty Crusader had a very different story. They failed to make even a 
single first down, and for the second successive Saturday failed to complete 
even a single pass. The blocking, passing and running plays of both teams 
were far below par, and it was the kicking alone that held of the screaming 
Eagle in his frenzy. 

Thus it was that the season ended with two scoreless ties. A season 
of six consecutive victories, two narrow defeats and two unfortunate score- 
less ties. A season of memories — those long, high passes to ends far beyond 
the safety man — sparkling broken field running — perfect plays and per- 
fect blocking — a heavy, perfectly balanced line, the best in Holy Cross 
history — a season of memories. 



Walter Clifford 

./ tribute to a missing member 

of the 

Senior Class 

Holding a place in our affections and admiration that was peculiarly his, the gallant 
Walter Clifford has had our hopes, our encouragement and our prayers in his battle for 
life. Forced to withdraw from college at the close of the football season, Walter's long 
hospital seige tound him battling illness as courageously as he fought his way through 
opposing elevens as a Holy Cross quarterback, and the pluck, he has displayed through 
long suffering has shown his true mettle more than any athletic contest could. 

An acknowledged leader through our first three years on the Hill, Walt was in the 
lore of every activity. He gave bountifully of his energy, his time, his enthusiasm and his 
spirit to numerous extra-curricular programs. As Prefect of the Sodality, he was under- 
graduate leader of that powerful body, and his inspiring efforts more than justified his 
election. As an entertainer, Wally had few equals and his participation in a reception or 
other social event inevitably insured its success as entertainment. His blackface act with 
Frank Cammarano brought down the house on more than one well-remembered occasion. 

There is no need to mention Wally's record as a football man. For three years he 
toiled as an understudy, gathering the pointers that were to be so valuable to him last fall 
when he passed and ran his way through bewildered enemy elevens. Fast, shifty and 
elusive, it was next to impossible to bring him down in a broken field. 

Always vitally and glowingly alive, radiant with bubbling enthusiasm, Wally was 
a magnetic figure in any gathering. Covering a deep sincerity of purpose with a genial, 
good-natured exterior he fulfilled in every way the requisites of an ideal Holy Cross man. 

We miss Wally!

The 1933 Baseball Season 

Weather that was decidedly unseasonal, with cold, snow, and prolonged rain, kept 
Jack Barry's baseball hopefuls confined to the cage until far into the Easter holidays, and 
the consequent lack of outdoor work considerably dimmed hopes of another intercollegiate 
title for the Crusaders. Rain caused the postponement of three April games and it was not 
till May that outdoor practice could be had safely. 

• Bad breaks in the form of injuries next came to the fore to worry Coach Barry. Frank 
Cammarano, Captain of the Purple crew, and brilliant first baseman, suffered a leg injury 
in practice that kept him in the infirmary for two weeks and made it doubtful that he 
would be able to see any service at the first sack this season. Dick Canavan, promising 
Sophomore shortstop, suffered a head injury during a cage workout that made it impos- 
sible for him to play any more baseball this year. Another addition to the casualty list 
came in the delayed opening game when George "Doc" Corrigan, varsity shortstop, 
sprained an ankle after giving a great exhibition in the field and at bat. The mishap 
kept "Doc"' out of action for several weeks. 

Graduation of several 1932 stars left big gaps in the lineup for this year. Buck 
Mahoney, pitching star of last year, Capt. Johnny Marshall and Phil O'Connell at short 
and second, and Tony Colucci and Tom Farrell, hard-hitting outfielders, all had to be 
replaced this season. Veterans seemed assured of the remaining posts and most of the 
early season sessions were devoted to finding successors for the above-mentioned players. 
A number of promising candidates reported when practice opened in February but the 
poor weather made it impossible to determine accurately their ability under fire. 

The opening game of the season, an exhibition with the Boston Braves scheduled 
for April 12, had to be postponed because of cold weather. The official opening, against 
Brown on the traditional Patriots' Day date, had to be called off for the same reason. 

When the season finally got underway, with the Purple playing Brown at Providence 
on April 22, there were numerous new faces in the Holy Cross lineup. Ev Britt and "Doc" 
Couillard, stars of Jack Reed's Freshman team last year, were in center and right field 
respectively. George Corrigan, utility infielder for two years, opened at short, while Ed 
Moriarty, a heavy-hitting Sophomore, was at second base. The injury to Capt. Frank 
Cammarano sent Johnny "Red" Horgan, catching understudy, to first base. 

Al Niemiec, of the timely bat and the rifle-like arm, held down the hot corner, open- 
ing his third year as a varsity infielder. The peppy Don Maynard was behind the bat, 
while big Joe Mulligan, who saw service on the firing line last year, was on the pitching 

The game itself brought cheer to the hearts of Holy Cross men. Joe Mulligan sent 
down 16 Brunonians via the strike-out route while his mates were getting timely base hits 
to give the Crusaders a 6-0 win over Brown. George Corrigan got three out of three to 
lead the Crusader attack, while Ed Moriarty ran him a close second with two timely blows. 
Mulligan had a bad first inning but weathered it safely and thereafter held the Bruins 
easily. The big Junior held Brown to five singles, while the Cross batters were gathering 
eight safe blows. 


The now familiar rain started again after the opening contest and 
forced the Barry men into the cage once more. The contest with Boston 
University was cancelled and the Purple baseballers were badly in need of 
outdoor work, when Bob McNamara and his N. Y. U. team arrived for 
what was to be the opening game at home. 

The New Yorkers handed Holy Cross its first defeat before a crowd 
of 4,000 at Fitton Field on April 29th. Showing their lack of practice, the 
Crusaders played ragged ball behind Mulligan's pitching to have the Violets 
romp off with an 8-3 victory. With six games already under their belts, 
the N. Y. U. men gave a great baseball exhibition, getting timely hits and 
playing a last game in the field. McNamara, Cross nemesis for two seasons, 
held down the Purple hitters when men were on the paths to earn the vic- 
tory. George Couillard opened the Holy Cross scoring by slamming one of 
McNamara's fast balls far into center field for a home run. Ed Moriarty 
was an important figure in the attack, getting three more base hits. The 
Crusaders got to McNamara for eight hits, but were guilty of five fielding 
misplays. Paul Tierney played short in place of the injured Corrigan and 
Canavan and robbed one New York batsman of a hit by racing over behind 
second base and rifling the pellet to Horgan at first. 

Tufts came to town May 3, and fell before a long-hit barrage by a 6-4 
count. Sophomore Bill Sline, southpaw hurler, made his first start of the 
year, but gave way to Joe Mulligan, who was credited with the win. Al 
Niemiec slammed one of Andy's deliveries to deep left center for a homer 
in the first inning, with "Doc" Couillard following his example in the same 


* M 

session to garner his second four-ply wallop of the year. Ed Britt and Don 
Maynard were important factors in the victory, while the veteran Nie- 
miec's single in the seventh chased the two winning runs across the plate. 
"Buzz" Harvey, Sophomore football man, made his varsity debut at first 
and played faultlessly afield and knocked out one safe bingle. 

With the big games of the season approaching, the Barrymen seemed 
finally to have hit their stride and were ready for all comers. Mulligan 
and Larry Quinn, senior curve-baller, were expected to pitch most of the 
remaining games and on them rested many of the Holy Cross hopes for 
another great season. The opponents looming on the baseball horizon in- 
cluded Yale, Providence, Harvard and Boston College, all old rivals who 
were to be met in two- and three-game series. Other coming games were 
those with William and Mary, Georgetown, Middlebury, Springfield and 
the Harvard Graduates. 

Hope that Capt. Frank Cammarano, leader of this year's Purple array, 
would have recovered sufficiently to play later in the season has been ex 
pressed on every side. The popular Frank is an inspiring leader, a sure 
fielder, and a heavy hitter and his absence brought sincere sorrow to all 
Holy Cross men. 

The popular captain headed the list of Seniors who are wearing Holy 
Cross uniforms for the last time. Another whose loss will be sorely felt is 
Al Niemiec, flashy third baseman for the past three seasons. Tim Murray, 
long range hitter and fine throwing left-fielder will likewise be missed. 

The departure of the diminutive George Corrigan will leave an open spot at short, the 
post he won on the basis of dependable play afield and good work at the bat. Others to 
graduate are Larry Quinn, curve ball pitcher, and Paul Schoenrock, utility outfielder, 
whose ability as a pinch hitter made him extremely valuable. Fleet of foot and able to 
cover a large territory in the field, Paul was handicapped by illness in his attempt at a 
steady varsity berth. 

Having behind it a tradition of decades, baseball is much more important at Holy 
Cross than at other colleges. With the memories of Jack Barry, Joe Dugan, Rosy Ryan, 
Owen Carroll, Joe Morrissey, Bots Nekola, Gene Desautels and other Crusader immortals 
ever present, the sport and excellence in it is a tradition on the Hill. With the season 
finally underway, despite all the handicaps and misfortunes which have piled up, the 1933 
Holy Cross team can be depended on to rank with the leaders of intercollegiate baseball.

The 1933 Track Season 

As the lights of the stage dimmed in June, 1932, two great track men 
were lost to the Holy Cross relay team in the personages of McCarthy and 
Holland. But as the curtain rang up this year, rumors were heard that the 
genius of Bart Sullivan had developed another worthy relay team. 

On January 28th, this team made its first public appearance at the 
Prout Memorial C James at the Boston Garden! The opposition was a team 
from good John Harvard's illustrious college. The Crusaders ran a good 
race, and forced the fastest time of the night, though dropping the decision 
when Harvard's Dodge proved a trifle faster than our Morin. "Tim" Ring, 
the yet unseasoned runner, received his baptism of fire in royal style, and 
showed a splendid fighting heart as he battled two laps of the track, neck 
and neck with Morse running in the pole position. But it was a defeat 
without a sting, for it served to raise the hopes of the Purple supporters 
that they were going to witness another season of thrilling relay races. 
Coakley and Winslovv showed as dependable men for their berths on the 
team. Time 3 min. 26.6 sec. 

The Crusaders' team B relay, composed of Tierney, Cuneo, Mulready 
and Novvlin, administered a sound drubbing to Harvard's second team who 
were passed by B. C. for second place in the last leg of this four-cornered 
relay match. M. I. T. took the fourth place. Time 3 min. 32.8 sec. 

Returning to Worcester, the boys began their training to prepare for 
their match with the speedy Eagle fliers. On February 11th they took their 
places on the boards against their rivals at the B. A. A. games. Coakley 
was laboring under a severe attack of the "flu" and at the last minute the 
red-thatched Tierney was chosen as lead-oft man to compete against Mc- 
Manus, one of B. C.'s best. Oft the mark they flew, and Tierney fought 
his way into a lead off the last bank, Ring and Winslow picked up more 
of a lead, and as Morin started the anchor leg he had a lead of over twenty 
yards on Carey of B. O, which he promptly increased, though Ed Carey 
fought hard to gain. When the final relays were run it was found that the 
Crusaders had beaten the time of the famed Penn team, shading them by 
three full seconds, for the fastest time of the night. Time 3:25.2. 

February 18th marked the date of the University Club meet at Boston, 
and again the Purple were matched with Harvard's aces. Once again the 
patrons of the Garden were treated to a battle between thoroughbreds. 
Harvard ran a very heady race from starting lap until the close. Calvin 
beat Coakley to the first turn, and from there he led the hard-pressing 
Purple runner; Tierney forced Locke to step his best to retain his slight 

lead; Ring in turn fought time and time again to force Morse to yield him 
the pole and the lead, but he was denied; Winslovv running in place of the 
stricken Morin, tore after Dodge, and coming off the corner for the second 
lap, pulled abreast of Captain Phil and raced neck and neck for the next 
bank, but being on the outside as the turn loomed he missed by inches an 
opportunity to cut into the pole, and Dodge led him home by a few hard- 
earned yards off the last bank. Time 3:26.6. 

The Crusaders though defeated by their dearest enemy, yet had sue 
ceeded in the afternoon in annexing a first place in the broad jump, through 
the efforts of the Captain, Tom McNally. Big Chuck Riess, the football 
captain-elect, placed third in the 35-pound weight throw. So, all in all, 
the Purple made a good showing on their last appearance in Boston for the 
indoor season, for Ken Cuneo managed to fight his way into a third in 
the 880-yard run against a fast field. 

In this writeup the two New York meets, the Millrose Games and 
I. C. A. A. A. A. were purposely left to the last, that the readers of this 
book might better hear in detail of the two classic runs of the season. 

The Millrose meet was run under the new metric system of measure- 
ment. The Purple runners were matched in a three-cornered race with 
Manhattan and Michigan State Normal. The race opened with a very fast 
leg by Coakley, putting his hand out to pass the baton to Ring it dropped 
to the boards. When it was recovered Holy Cross was third in position by 
all of fifteen yards, and the customers sat back to watch Manhattan romp 
to victory. But Ring thought otherwise, instead of starting on the first lap 
of his leg to catch the opposition, he showed a running head far beyond 
his slight experience, and bided his time until the second lap. On, on he 
tore, sprinting like wildfire, passed the Michigan man, and brought the 
packed Madison Square Garden to its feet as he gained on the Green. 
Then the fun began. Winslow fought on to stave off the almost super- 
human efforts of Huber of Michigan to pass him; Morin received the baton 
and as the bell sounded the last lap, the plucky Crusader sprinted for the 
tape and edged Manhattan's anchor across the line. In spite of the mis- 
fortune of the dropped baton, the Royal Purple turned in the second fastest 
time of the night, their time being bested by Penn alone. Time 3:24.4. 

With high hopes the Crusader relay journeyed to the 258th Field 
Artillery Armory, in the big Metropolis of New York, to try to wrest away 
the intercollegiate one-mile relay crown. Their confidence was not over- 
ripened and they had the fighting spirit to win. The race they ran though 
they did lose, was the classic fighting effort of their year. March 4th it 
was, and a day to be remembered by many of us when we have left cloi- 
stered Loyola for the last time as students. 

A. Morin, C. Nowlin, R. Tierney, T. Ring, W. Coakley G. Winslow. 

Safely through to the finals the Purple warriors sped, then came the finals and the 
ultimate championship. Coakley led off and passed to Ring, who proceeded to show the 
fans a 48 4-5 quarter, which incidentally was the second fastest leg of the evening, Ring 
being beaten by Olympic Bill Carr in 48, but as he closed to pass to Winslow his legs 
would sustain him no longer and with a dying plunge he strove to reach the already 
traveling Winslow, and fell. When the baton was regained, Winslow tore down the track 
in a vain attempt to catch up and having regained a fourth position passed to Morin, who 
though he battled hard, was passed by Warner of Yale. Thus the Purple finished in fifth 
position, but their defeat was anything but ignominous, and as true Crusaders they went 
down in the battle fighting to the last second.

Cross Country 

To the hill and dalers belongs much credit for the many beautiful autumn afternoons 
on which they forsook the favorite haunts of their fellows, the elm-lined streets and parks 
of North Worcester, to don shorts and spikes at Bart Sullivan's behest. And more espe- 
cially this season for their faithful performance every afternoon with but one meet in 
sight. On October 7, but a few short weeks after the beginning of classes they travelled 
to Cambridge, where the wearers of the Crimson romped into the finish before them, 
despite their efforts to close up. Mud was a contributory factor to the downfall of the 
Purple, yet every man crossed the finish line led by Ed Kenney, '35. Clarke and Blake 
of the Varsity removed their shoes for better grip on the treacherous sections and finished 
the last half mile of cinders in their bare feet. Of such stuff are Holy Cross men made. 
Basil Dunn biased the way for the Purple Frosh, finishing in fifth place. A meet scheduled 
with Brown was cancelled, due to the dropping of cross-country at that institution. At 
M. I. T. a holiday, mourning the death of one of her professors, prevented the Purple 
harriers from meeting her cross-country runners. Attendance at the N. E. I. C. 4A run 
was precluded due to the small schedule. Yet day in and day out, our varsity and fresh- 
men kept themselves in shape and to them goes our applause. Varsity: Blake, Capt.; 
Cuneo, Clarke, Sullivan, '33; T. Burke, '34; Garrity, Kenney, R. Burke, Hayward, '35. 
Freshmen: Dykas, Fanning, J. N. Murphy, Spellane, Laws and Dunn.

Varsity Tennis 

The success of the tennis team this year depends on the ability of Captain Jim Nichol- 
son to find two men with the strokes and steadiness that will he necessary to round out a 
well-balanced team. The three seniors, Jim Nicholson, Jack. Keenan, and Jack Cahill, 
varsity letter men since sophomores year, and Jim O'Shea, a junior who earned his insig- 
nia last year as a sophomore, present an array equipped with the experience that is so 
important in holding up their end of the matches. The success of the tennis team as a 
whole, however, hinges on a team balance, without which no season will be a success. 
Hence the importance of filling those two positions. 

Nicholson's task should be made easy by the abundance of material that is available 
this year. In the senior class, there are Jack Haggerty, former intra-mural winner, and 
Frank Rooney, the present manager. The juniors have Bill Findlan, who defeated 
Rooney in the intra-mural final last fall, Ed Molinc, who has improved rapidly since 
freshman year, Ed Kennedy and Ceorge Cheney. Bill Hughes seems most promising of 
the present crop of sophomores. If any two of these live up to expectations, pre-season 
predictions give every evidence of a success! ul spring. 

Manager Frank Rooney, though necessarily curtailed in making out his schedule, has 
succeeded in booking eight matches, all in May, and if the weather is favorable, the 
Crusader net-men will have a strenuous month ahead of them. The schedule is as fol-

Golf Team 

With prospects at their most brilliant since the inception of golf as a major sport, the 
golf team opened its 1933 season April 28 against Georgetown University at Princeton, 
N. J. Eleven matches in all were scheduled for Capt. Jim Collins' mashie wielders by 
Manager Bernie Fee, seven of them intercollegiate league contests. 

Capt. Jim Collins, Dick Hartigan and Ade Casey, all seasoned in intercollegiate com- 
petition, were expected to be the mainstays of the Purple linksmen. Underclass brilliants, 
notably Ancy Doyle, Bill Donnelly, Bill Reidy, Dan Shea and Phil Fahey, were all expected 
to ofTer material help in the team's quest for honors. All are past tournament winners 
and competitive golfers of recognized prowess. 

The most cheerful omen in Crusader golfing annals was seen when Charlie Donnelly, 
'11, a golfer of high reputation, became coach of the golfiing team early this spring. He 
was expected to mould the strong material into a victorious team.

For years a dream on the part of many interested students, the Rifle and Pistol Club, 
became an actuality in May, 1932. In the brief time remaining that year many forward 
steps were taken and the foundations were laid for a strong organization this year. This 
year, with extensive cooperation on the part of students, faculty, the Massachusetts 
National Guard and the United States Army, the club broadened and enlarged the scope 
of its activities. 

Matches were contested with various college and club teams; interest in safe shooting 
was aroused in the student body and faculty, and many informal shoots were held. With 
its purpose to encourage rifle and pistol shooting, with a view toward a better knowledge 
of safe handling and proper care of firearms, the club has seen its influence increase more 
and more each month. 

During the indoor season firing was held at least three times a week. Matches were 
fired with the Worcester Pistol and Rifle Club, Mississippi State College, Columbia Uni- 
versity and Boston College. Spring shooting was done at the Shrewsbury range, and an 
intra-mural contest attracted wide support. 

Holy Cross Outing Club 

Starting with the conviction that Mt. St. James was not the steepest slope in New 
England, a small group of the class of 1933 organized the Holy Cross Outing Club in the 
spring of 1932. 

The initial, local hikes were always preceded by long trolley rides to the outskirts of 
Worcester. The club's "proving grounds" were on the trails of the Appalachian Moun- 
tain Club on Mt. Asnebumskit, Little Asnebumskit, Stone House Hill and Pine Hill. When 
the new hikers wore out the squeaks in their heavy shoes and had grown to consider Wor- 
cester County as offering nothing novel for hiking purposes, the club sought fields afar. 
The steeper slopes of Mt. Wachusett and Mt. Monadnock called for exploration and con- 
quest. As on its previous trips, the club maintained its record of never walking if it could 
ride by travelling in style to the immediate scene of its climbs. The 1932 spring season 
closed with the club a well-established activity on the Hill, opening up new horizons for 
Sundays and holidays and proving of greater interest to undergraduates. 

In the fall of 1932 the club made several return trips to its old haunts and then visited 
Mt. Wachusett and Mt. Monadnock, reaching the summits by newer trails. The big 
event of the fall season was the clubs week-end at Dr. John H. Fallon's "camp" on Misery 
Island off Beverly Farms. The members spent the week-end on the island boating and 
climbing gullies. The club was so fortunate as to have a chaplain on the trip in the person 
of Fr. Hutchinson, S.J., who celebrated Holy Mass for the club. 

The winter season featured whatever winter sports the weather's extremes allowed. 
Mt. St. James afforded a certain minimum of skiing and snowshoeing, but skating was 
practically a nonentity. The snow trains proved a boon to the club's experienced skiers. 
And the snow trains brought the club's novices to a profound appreciation of their par- 
ticular gracefulness on the long shafts. Trips were made on successive Sundays to Craw- 
ford Notch, Franconia Notch and to Mt. Monadnock. In addition the local hills were 
frequently used as training grounds for those Sunday workouts in the mountains. In thus 
diversifying its outdoor activities by its inclusion of various sports, the Outing Club 
achieved even wider attention and popularity among the students. 

So it was that the Spring of 1933, the club's first anniversary, saw an increase in 
membership, in its interests and in its wide attractions. For the first time independent 
hikes were undertaken under the club's name. Small groups sought out new trails, new 
territory to explore. Smatterings of photography, geography, topography and geology 
were absorbed rather painlessly on these tours and in addition the members found in their 
own numbers the most pleasant companionship of the open road. 

To Mr. Daniel Linehan, S.J., the graduating members owe the greatest thanks for his 
efforts in organizing the club and in continuing as its leading spirit. Dr. John H. Fallon, 
'19, was at once the club's host and its chief adviser on many of its ventures. It is to the 
enthusiasm of these two men that the club owes its establishment and growing success. 
Among the senior members of the club were numbered Charles S. Horgan, Louis E. 
Lynch, J. Frank Morris, John Ward, Charles J. McGoey, Joseph P. Kelley, Joseph E. 
Keating, Edward J. Duff, Edward B. Garvey, John R. Cahill, Louis Flaherty and Thomas 
P. Scannell. 





The Riding Club 

Through the hearty endeavor and enthusiasm of Father D. F. X. O'Connor, S.J., the 
Cross now happily hoasts of an excellent Riding Club. Sometime last March a meeting 
of organization was called by Father O'Connor and more than fifty interested students 
cooperated in founding the new club. At this foundation officers were elected as follows: 
Gardiner S. Gibson, '33, of Dayton, Ohio, as President, and Justin LaSalle, '33, of Valley 
Falls, Rhode Island, as Chairman ot Committees. 

The Club thus far has established a bureau of information in regard to riding facil- 
ities and stables in the Worcester vicinity, a flat rate reduction for each of its members, and 
a discount available to each member of the club in the purchase of equipment throughout 
the athletic stores in the city. Some plans, too, have been formulated for organizing a polo 
team within the next year or so. 

James W. Stevens, '36, of Framingham, Massachusetts, has acted in the capacity of 
Secretary during the past year and will continue to do so throughout the coming one. It 
is hoped that Father O'Connor, the Facility Moderator and founder, will continue in his 
present position for the coming year, as much remains yet undone, and there will be need 
of his encouraging and responsible direction and labor. 


Freshman Athleti 




The largest group of freshman football athletes ever to report for a Holy Cross fresh- 
man football team was met by Coach Jack Reed, '09, on the first day of the scholastic 
year 1932-1933. Talent from every section of the country, many former high school 
and preparatory school captains were among them. But a week had passed when the 
squad proved to be composed of men ready and capable to take up the sport, and go on 
for Holy Cross, where it was left oft by Holy Cross immortals of other years. 

John J. Woods, coming to us from Flushing High School, Flushing, New York, took 
on the roll of captain and carried on his duties in this capacity throughout the season. Jack 
proved his worth and acted his part as a captain, worthy of the title. 

The initial game of the season was played on St. Anselm soil in Manchester, New 
Hampshire. The "cubs" displayed their real strength in the first five minutes of play 
when they marched the length of the field to the opening touchdown of the: season. 
Flanagan, Hobin, Morris, and Woods carried the ball to mid-field. From here Nick 
Morris let go one of his forty-five-yard passes to the waiting arms of Jim Hobin, who 
carried the ball over the goal line for the only Holy Cross score of the afternoon, the 
point after the touchdown being missed by inches. In the second half St. Anselm's turned 
the tables and brought the ball to the "Cross" three-yard-line. From here Glorick, the St. 
Anselm halfback carried the ball over to tie the score. Mugford, the St. Anselm kicker, 
sent the ball between the uprights to victory. Score: St. Anselm's 7, Holy Cross Freshmen 
6. To the sorrow of the freshmen, Jim Hobin, a kicker yet to make history for Holy 
Cross, sprained his ankle and was carried from the field after having been the outstanding 
back of the afternoon. 

St. John's Prep, was the next opponent to be met. After trailing for almost the entire 
game, the Crusadering Frosh came from behind, with but a minute left to play, and tied 
the score, 7 to 7. A long pass, Curran to Cusick, was responsible for the touchdown', 
Cusick kicking the extra point. Incidentally, this was Cusick's last game for the 
Freshmen for he developed an appendicitis, shortly afterwards, and was lost to the 
club for the remainder of the season. His absence was keenly felt. A blocked punt paved 
the way for the St. John's score, early in the first period. The Purple team registered 
fifteen first downs to their opponents seven. The Frosh took honors in both passing and 
on the defense. It was a "Cross" afternoon, but our seven points weren't quite enough to 
spell victory. Joe Murphy, the big freshman tackle, proved on this afternoon that he 
would be heard from, once he clad himself in varsity armor. 

Next the club traveled to Dudley, Mass., to carry off a victory never to be forgotten 
by the men of Nichols Junior College. The score, when the final whistle blew, wbs 
40 to 0, in favor of the "Cross." Morris, McNichols, Flanagan and Capt. Woods doing the 
scoring. The boys scored at will and spent the afternoon under the shadow of the 
Nichols goal post. After losing to St. Anselm's by one point, and playing a 7 to 7 tie with 
St. John's, the Reedmen finally struck their stride, chalking up their first victory of the 


year. The injury jinx, however, stayed with the club. Charlie Hoar, the speed merchant 
from Boston, suffered a broken collarbone which brought his freshman career to an 
abrupt end. 

The season was to be closed after playing the Brown Freshmen in Worcester, but 
due to treacherous weather had to be cancelled in favor of a later date, which could never 
be realized. Consequently, the game with the Boston College Freshmen, played in Haver- 
hill, at the request of the Haverhill American Legion, proved to be he last contest of the 
season. Upsetting all previous predictions, an inspired group of Eaglets defeated the 
Freshmen to the tune of 13 to 6. The Holy Cross score came late in the second period 
when George Bartlett, labeled to follow in the footsteps of Holy Cross greats, took a short 
pass from Nick Morris and ran forty-five yards through a broken field, to, and across, the 
Boston College goal line. Morris' excellent passing was the biggest factor in the Purple 
offense. Captain Woods, Flanagan, McDonald, Morris, Karpowich, Bartlett and Murphy, 
all gave a splendid account of themselves throughout the afternoon. Both Driscoll and 
Felon starred for the victors. Thus another season of freshman football was brought to 
a close at Holy Cross. 

Much is to be said for the squad of fifty-eight yearlings who gave up afternoon after 
afternoon so that one day they could go to battle for Holy Cross, on the big stage. We 
look to them to keep the name of Alma Mater at the top of all the sporting pages of the 
country, during their days here on the Hill. We knew them well as freshmen and 
although we leave them, we will continue to know them, not through contact, but through 

Great credit should be given to their coach, Jack Reed, for his untiring efforts, instill- 
ing in them principles of manliness and football so that they could carry on as true

Freshman Baseball 

With the season opening against Nichols Junior College at Dudley, 
May 3, bad weather made it impossible for Coach Jack Reed to call out his 
candidates until a week before the opening engagement of the year. In- 
tensive practice enabled the Frosh mentor to mold together a heavy-hitting 
club for the initial contest. 

Despite the fact that spring football drew many of the candidates, a 
sizeable number reported for practice and it was only after several trials 
that the regular squad was selected. Tom McLaughlin and Paul Thompson 
were the pitchers, the former showing up extremely well. Joe Cusick held 
down the backstop post. The infield had Bill Fraser at first, Ed Curran 
at second, Nick Morris at short and Gerry Fogarty at third. In the outfield 
were Pete Dowd, Jim Canty and Charley Hoar. Reserve players included 
Jack Buckley, Tom Mclnerney, Bill Bigos, Ed Couillard, Bill Dempsey and 
Jack Flanagan. 

The Frosh lost the opening game to Nichols by a 15-14 score after a wild battle. Loose 
fielding and slow covering by the plebes gave the victory to the Dudley outfit. Tom Mc- 
Laughlin toiled on the mound for five innings, limiting the collegians to one hit, a scratch 
bingle, and sending down ten on strikeouts. Paul Thompson did a creditable job as his suc- 
cessor, but poor fielding cost him his chance of a win. The most encouraging sign was the 
Frosh's heavy hitting, which sent three pitchers from the mound. Twenty-two safe blows, 
many of them tor extra bases, rang of freshman willows. Nick Morris led the attack with 
six hits, while Joe Cusick slammed out three successive triples. 

Incubator of varsity players, freshman baseball this year has several who should make 
the grade next year or the year following. With the coming of mid-season the Frosh are 
expected to rank high in their class, as they appear to have all the elements of a good ball 
club. Poor fielding was the major early season fault, but practice and coaching were 
expected to eliminate much of that flaw. The hitting of the team was hard and timely and 
augured well for future Holy Cross nines. 

The schedule, an extremely difficult one, lists eight games: 

May 3— Nichols Junior College at Dudley 
May 9 — Boston University Freshmen at Boston 
May 13 — Harvard University Freshmen at Cambridge 
May 17 — Brown University Freshmen at Providence 
May 19 — Worcester Academy at Worcester 
May 20 — St. Thomas' Seminary at Hartford 
May 24 — St. John's Prep at Danvers 
May 27 — Dean Academy at Franklin 

Canty, Fanning, Dykas, Murphy, Murphy. 



The freshman relay opened an interesting season by defeating the Harvard yearlings 
in the Knights of Columbus Prout Games with a time of 3 min. 34.8 sec. Casey opened 
in the lead which position was maintained by the two Murphys, Joe N. (Red) and Edwin, 
to be swept into a conclusive win by Leon Dykas, the '36 flash, running anchor. Two 
weeks later the Crimson yearlings avenged themselves at the B. A. A. meet by following 
Northeastern in ahead of the Purple Frosh in 3 min. 32.2 sec. Determined to show 
their superiority, Casey, Dykas, Murphy & Co. entered the University Club meet the fol- 
lowing Saturday night against the same rivals of a week before. The start was excellent 
and boded ill for those not clothed in regal colors. Soon after the baton passed to Joe 
Murphy a worn board gave him a nasty spill, but he was up in a flash and eager to pass 
the stick to his fresh teammate to make up the loss. Ed Murphy's solicitude for a fellow 
clansmen, and Leon Dykas' beautiful anchor leg, brought the Purple ahead of the Crim- 
son, though Northeastern again broke the tape first in 3 min. 33.2 sec. 

First Row — Murphy, Dellicolli, Janiack, Casey. 

Second Row — Grat, Fanning, Murphy, Murphy. I.awes, Dykas, 



Joseph Phaneuf distinguished himself at the Prout Games by winning his heat in 
the 45-meter high hurdles, but a pulled tendon prevented his taking further part and kept 
him in the field for the remainder of the indoor season. A like fate attended Walter Jan- 
iak, who placed second in his heat in the 50-yard dash, and has since been off the boards. 

With the opening of the spring season the yearlings meet Brown at Providence, Boston 
College at Chestnut Hill, and Worcester Academy on Fitton Field. In addition to the 
relay, much is expected of Phaneuf in the hurdles, Janiak in the dashes, Edward Murphy 
in the high jump, Dykas at the 220 and quarter mile, while a galaxy of weight men 
including Dick Vitulo, Bill McQuillan, Joe C. Murphy and Joe McDonald will support the 
field events.

Freshman Basketball 

After a year's interim basketball once again took its place in the official sports cur- 
ricula of Mt. St. James in the form of the 1932-1933 freshman team. When varsity bas- 
ketball was eliminated following the 1930-1931 season, such interest was evidenced that it 
was deemed wise to reinstate this popular winter sport at the Cross. 

Shortly after Thanksgiving, when it was decided to put a team on the court, Jim 
Nicholson, '33, a member of the last varsity quintet, was selected by the Athletic Associa- 
tion to coach the yearling aspirants, and practice was begun immediately on the first of 

The highlights of the season were well-earned victories over a capable Providence 
College five, and a comeback win over Dean Academy in the sole home game of the 
season. Against the former, the representatives of 1936 came through with the final punch 
to take a thrilling 27 to 24 victory. The Dean game is worthy of special note because of 
the caliber of the opposition and because it was a decisive win over a previous victor. 
The starting team for the major part of the schedule was composed of Jack Kenneally, 
Glens Falls, Lou Nicholson, Syracuse, forwards; Tom O'Neil, Akron, center; and Peter 
Dowd, Worcester, and Bill Kenneally, Glens Falls, guards. Dowd and Nicholson were 
the most consistent scorers and turned in fine performances in all the phases of play. Tom 
O'Neil, six-foot four-inch center, was a bulwark on defense, and his tremendous height 
made him invaluable on offense. George Bartlett, Jim Hobin and Vin Cooney also saw 
first-string service. 

Great credit is due to those connected with the freshman squad for the manner in 
which they managed things during the season; to Tom O'Keefe, '35, and Omar Lavigne, 
'36, for having fulfilled the duties of managers; to Jim Nicholson, '33, for his untiring 
efforts in the capacity of coach; and to the members of the squad in general for the whole- 
hearted spirit of enthusiasm and cooperation they continually displayed.

Intra-Mural Athletics 

Ri v. Fr. Ballou, S.J. 

Intramural sports ,the activity which has made 
competition in every practicable form of athletics pos- 
sible for the entire student body, had its inception in 
September of 1931, under the capable direction of 
Father Maurice V. Dullea. Prior to this time many 
attempts had been made to establish intra-murals on a 
large scale on Mount Saint James, but all fell short of 
the desired result. When, however, they were organ- 
ized under faculty supervision, their success was instan- 
taneous. This year, due to the departure of Father 
Dullea, Father Ballou succeeded to the position of 
faculty moderator and evinced the same enthusiastic 
interest in intra-murals as his predecessor. The new 
moderator actuated his desire to further the develop- 
ment of intra-murals by introducing such innovations 
as horse shoes, inter-corridor tennis tournaments and 
touch football. From the very beginning the members 
of the various classes were quick to take advantage of 
the opportunity offered to engage in their favorite 
athletic diversion and enter into the friendly yet 
spirited rivalry afforded by intra-murals. The interest 
in this activity, heightened because of the fact that awards are given to the members of 
the championship team and to the victors in the individual tourneys, has grown so rapidly 
that now more than two-thirds of the students participate in some sport. 

Much of the praise for the popularization of intra-murals is due to the Students' 
Athletic Council, composed of Chairman Charles R. Callahan of the Senior class and hio 
aides, James Sullivan and Philip Burns of the Junior and Sophomore classes respectively. 
The Council has for its duties the organization of teams, the planning of schedules and 
the appointment of umpires and judges. Perhaps the chief purpose of the Council is to 
arrange sports for every season of the school-year. With this in mind, Charles Callahan 
commenced his program with the fall tennis tournament which was to decide both the 
singles and doubles' championships. Again, foreseeing that there would be a lull in the 
winter sports, the chairman of the Council decided that a swimming meet should be 
arranged. This meet was held towards the close of the basketball season. An unusually 
large number of students took advantage of the practice sessions which were held twice 
weekly and thus conditioned themselves for the big event. The meet was productive of 
many excellent performances on the part of Charles Reiss, Joe LoGuidice, Bernard Ward, 
Walter Byrnes, Peter Scales and many others. 

Although the winter sports are received with remarkable zest, Holy Cross is at heart 
baseball-minded. Therefore the intra-mural class and corridor baseball leagues enjoy the 
greatest attention. During the baseball season there are at least four diamonds that are in 
constant use. These games bring to the fore such performers as Thomas Donohue, Jack 
Haggerty, Jim Ryan, Louis Depro, Justin Renz, Tom McCarthy and George Quinn, all of 
whom distinguished themselves as members of the Senior class. The Junior class, winners 
of last year's baseball crown, can point with pride to the diamond accomplishments of Tom 

Campbell, Joe LoGuidice, Fred Drescher, Dan Curtin, Jim Sullivan and Walt Burns. The 
men who were outstanding in a baseball way in the Sophomore class were Reischmann, 
McGrath, Scanlon, Bacher, Collins and Moriarty. 

Tag football, which was introduced for the first time this year, proved to be the most 
popular fall sport. A hotly contested tournament left two Senior aggregations, Loyola I 
and Loyola III, to meet in the finals for the championship which was played on Fitton 
Field. The outcome was six to nothing in favor of Loyola I. Although all the par- 
ticipants gave good accounts of themselves, Al Niemiec of the conquering eight and Tom 
Scannell of Loyola III ought to be commended for their excellent exhibition of offensive 
and defensive play. The members of the winning team who received the intra-mura! 
charms were: Depro, Niemiec, Walsh, Quinn, Rooney, Clark, Saunders, Brady, Dunn, 
Corrigan and Eddy. 

The next intra-mural activity proposed to liven up the dead season was the fall track 
meet, at which time the intra-mural holiday was declared. This meet was held upon the 
cinders of Fitton Field and diffused all the glamor of a varsity affair. The Junior class 
finally wrested the victory from the hands of the Freshmen by the close score of twenty-six 
to twenty-four. Herman Dumas, known as the Iron-Man of '34, scored twelve points for 
his class by winning the 120 low hurdles and taking second places in the 100 and 200-yard 
dashes. But Dumas was not the only one who covered himself with glory that day, for 
those who fought to victory that day in the other events were: Frank Smith, '36, in the 
100; while the 440-yard run was easily managed by John Curry, also of the same. Jim 
Kelley, the only one in the Senior class who captured an event, led the pack to the tape in 
the half-mile. Joe Casey, '36, was awarded the medal in the 220-yard clash and Paul 
Brabazon, '36, leaped to victory in the high jump. The affair which furnished the most 
thrills, however, was the 880-yard relay which the Juniors, despite valiant efforts, lost to 
the Frosh team of Casey, Brabazon, Kenneally and Marchese. Since this meet was so 
well received, plans for a similar one in the spring were formulated and was run off with 
the highest success. 

Putting aside their running shoes and other equipment, the intra-muralists began to 
prime themselves for the winter feature, basketball. Soon tournament play was well 
advanced for both corridor and class teams. The corridor title was received into the hands 
of Alumni III, whose members were Herlihy, Ostrowski, Brogan, Horgan, LoGuidice and 
Farrelly who established their claim to the title beyond all dispute. The play in the inter- 
class league disclose^ the capabilities of men whose court play won the plaudits of their 
fellow classmates. Those who immediately come to mind are Tom McCarthy, Louis 
Depro, George Quinn, Jack McDonough, Harold McDonough, Tom Scannell, Paul 
Schoenrock, Joe Dunn, Charles Callahan and Al Niemiec of the Senior Class. The Juniors 
were well represented by Dan Curtin, Bob McMann, Jim Sullivan, Bill Bennett, Jack 
Teahan and Joe Grabowski. The outstanding courtmen of the league were not confined 
to the Junior and Senior classes alone, however. Dan Herlihy, John Ostrowski and 
Cannon of the Sophomore class and Tom O'Neill and Kenneally of the Freshman class 
were players to be reckoned with. 

While the basketball men were cavorting on their open-air court, a pool tournament 
was in progress which drew many interested contestants to the Recreational Hall. George 
Moran, popular prexy of the Senior class, whose fame as a horse-shoe player is also well 
known, and Joe Sinclitico, Freshman cueist, encountered much stern competition before 

they reached the finals. George Moran had to overcome Jack Cahill and Joe Sponzo and 
was severely tested in gaining the title over Sinclitico. 

A sport, not universally popular but certainly claiming its interest here at Holy Cross, 
is handball. This game is played all year round and attracts many devotees. The entrants 
who responded to the call this year were Jim Zyntcll and Tom Scanncll who won the 
Junior championship last year; Payton and Tomason, Graf and Blackmer, Morris and 
Mandry, Holmburg and Burns, and Sullivan and Callan. 

( )n March 29, the second annual swimming meet was held at the Boys' Club. The 
interest displayed showed that the efforts of Fr. Ballou and Charles Callahan were re- 
warded. The spirit among the contestants and spectators gave evidence of the popularity 
of the sport. 

The class of '34, amassing a total of 37 points, repeated its last year's performance by 
winning the meet. The sophomore class placed second with a total of 16 points, with 
the freshmen and seniors gaining 11 and 7, respectively. 

As a result of weeks of training, three of last year's records were broken. Walter 
Burns, '34, clipped 8 3/5 seconds from his former record in the 200 yard free-style. Leon- 
ard Langan, '34, in the back-stroke, broke his record by 3.3 seconds. Jack McSheehy, '56, 
reduced last year's time by 7 1/5 seconds in the 100 yard breast-stroke. 


200 yard Free-style— 1st Byrnes, '34; 2nd, Scales, '33; 3rd, E. O'Connell, '34. 

100 yard Back-stroke — 1st, Langan, '34; 2nd, Titus, '36; 3rd, Petrie, '35. 

50 yard Free-style — 1st, R. Smith, '34; 2nd, J. Marnane, '34; 3rd, R. Bacher, '35. 

100 yard Free-style — 1st, Marnane, '34; 2nd, Healy, '33; 3rd, Bacher, '35. 

100 yard Breast-stroke — 1st, McSheehy, '36; 2nd, Driscoll, '35; 3rd, Zintl, '35. 

Dive — 1st, Gorman, '34; 2nd, Bacher, '35; 3rd, Yarnel, '35. 

Relay won by Junior, Smith, Byrnes, Langan, Marnane. 

In closing, may we voice the sincere desire that intra-murals which have roused the 
students from the inactive state of mere spectators and transformed them into avid partici- 
pants in the sports themselves, continue to enjoy the tradiional success they have experi- 
enced in the past.
